Our Supporting Children’s Learning Through Creative Crafts is a specialist course that will provide practical support to parents and children in a fun, engaging and open plan method of delivery. Parents and children learn to work together developing the problem solving skills and techniques they will need to become independent learners.

Our highly skilled and experienced staff will help them unravel the mysteries of word shapes, and sounds. Our course will cover a range of arts and crafts activities, developing new skills and knowledge to enable parents and carers to develop their own abilities as well as support their child’s creativity. This course will be designed to support in-school Early Years and KS1 programmes.

This course will give mums, dads, carers and grandparents the chance to learn new skills and help children learn in a fun and friendly way. They will explore how children are taught to develop their imagination, listening, reading and numbers skills. This will be done by making simple instruments and resources to use with their child at home to make learning fun.
