Course overview

 

This is a joint class with the adults taught on their own for part of the session and then the children join them to work together. Parents develop ideas that can be used to support their child’s developing play and numeracy skills. The sessions are very informal, with many activities to do together which are designed to be interesting and fun.

Tutors will encourage parents to discuss their own experiences of helping their child to develop their life skills. They will look at how to have fun at home to help support their child's learning and development
