Families Connect



We also offer an 8-week Families Connect Course which is a fun and interactive course that gives you the opportunity to learn new skills together with your child. Families Connect builds on parents’ existing skills and knowledge, providing them with the confidence to support their child’s learning in the home.


Over eight weeks, you will discuss aspects of their children’s learning during informal workshops. You will be introduced to a series of adaptable activities, techniques and games that you can do with your children at home to support their children’s learning in three key areas:


Social and Emotional development

Literacy and language development
