Did you know that children spend less than 20% of their waking hours in school? When parents, grandparents and carers can support learning at home, children will have a much better chance of success. But we know, from speaking to many, many parents over the years, that it’s a challenge keeping up with how they teach children at school, that children ask questions about things that we’ve long forgotten and that homework is sometimes a complete mystery!
Family Learning have workshops and short courses for parents and carers of pre-school and primary aged children to support early reading, writing, counting and communication skills, internet safety, healthy eating and creative craft activities to help children learn indoors and outside.
Our Keep Up with the Children courses in English or maths show you how children are taught at school while you work towards your own up to date adult qualification. These courses are also ideal for anyone currently volunteering or working in schools or pre-schools or thinking of applying to work with children in any setting.
We also run sessions on handling stress, money management, CV and skills building and can provide advice and support for anyone wanting qualifications and looking for employment or a better job.
In all our classes, you’ll share ideas with other learners and an adult tutor at a relaxed pace – probably over a coffee or a tea. You’ll make resources and talk about activities to try out at home and you’ll build confidence to help guide your child and speak to school about their progress.
Family Learning … because learning together is fun!
