Why Family Learning?
By engaging in family learning, adults can be supported in their role as parents and carers and develop their knowledge and skills to support their child’s development, learning and well-being.
Family learning encourages parents and carers to learn together with their children. It can consist of programmes or single sessions and include activities which promote;
- learning through play
- family literacy and numeracy
- health and wellbeing
- parenting skills.
Ideas and resources to continue children’s learning at home are often incorporated into our programmes.
