What: 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.

Who: 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.

Why: 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.
