What is Family Learning About?


Family Learning Services can give parents and carers the opportunity to find out how things are taught in their own child's school, as well as a chance to share ideas with other parents and develop their own skills.

Family Learning supports parents' and children's learning and encourages learning in the home environment. We provide a variety of programmes for parents and carers who wish to support their children's learning. Group classes are interactive, informative and practical and are designed to suit the needs of the participants.
