During each session parents are encouraged to reflect upon what has worked well for them and their child, and to think about ways to continue to build upon this.

Over the 8 weeks we focus on a variety of topics to support holistic development including listening and understanding, speech and communication, fine and gross motor skills, literacy and early maths. The biggest focus of our sessions is creating a nurturing, safe environment for parents and children to have fun playing and learning together.
