Helping you to support your child's learning!

ALL FAMILY LEARNING COURSES ARE FREE!

Family Learning courses help Mums and Dads to learn new skills that will enable them to support their child’s learning, to help them do well at school and give pre-school aged children the best positive start.

These courses are designed for parents and carers who would like to learn how their children learn and want to develop their confidence in supporting their children’s individual learning.

Family Learning courses are about having fun and enjoying learning together as a family. Courses also enable you to meet other families with children the same age and share your experiences with other families as you learn.

You can let us know what courses you are interested in
by completing this
short consultation form

Can your 3-year old do these things?

The School Readiness Challenge Cards describe things most children should be able to have a go at by the time they are three years of age. All children are different and develop at different rates, and some children will make smaller steps of progress.

Use the chart with your child and tick off the things they can do:
