Parenting young children can be tough at the best of times and during this strange period in our history it can feel even more bewildering and stressful.
That’s why the Early Years Alliance are really pleased to be able to offer parents various free online sessions and courses — all delivered by professional early years experts — to help you support your child’s development.
The Alliance are currently offering three kinds of courses for free, thanks to support from the Department for Education:
Parent Connect online sessions — Parent Connects are one-off online events that provide an opportunity to connect with other parents and carers via Zoom and learn about topics relevant to families and children aged 0-5. The sessions are a chance to share ideas in how to support children’s early education and each other.
Let’s Learn Together @ Home — These three-week programmes take place throughout September 2022 through to March 2023 on a rolling monthly basis. The programme offers a personal approach to family learning and will help you better understand how children like to learn. By taking part in a variety of fun activities together, the sessions will help improve communication between you and your child. Plus, you’ll have the chance to learn in small groups and meet and connect with other families online.
Being Together, My Baby and Me — A free online virtual five-week programme especially designed for families with babies. This online programme combines advice on baby’s learning and development with post-natal support for new parents.
