Course overview

This course is available for parents with their Early Years/Year 1 child who attends Lantern Academy.

Learning through Play course shows parents/carers fun and innovative techniques and activities that help support the development of their child's language skills and learning. Parents develop ideas that can be used to support their child's joy of reading, numbers and creativity at home. The sessions are very informal, with many activities to do together which are designed to be interesting and fun to inspire both parent and child to get the most out of play time. The tutor works in conjunction with the setting's own curriculum. Tutors will encourage parents to discuss their own experiences of learning at school and to look at developing their own skills to keep up with their children. There are opportunities for parents to move on to work towards their own qualification in the community as well.
