Families Connect


       Families Connect at Balgreen


Families Connect is a programme supported by Save the Children.  Eight Primary 1 children and their families have been meeting every Tuesday afternoon at  Families Connect to talk about ways to help their children learn. The parents have had the opportunity to spend time with other parents and share advice and discuss the challenges of supporting their children’s learning.

During the sessions we have  talked about activities that help our children learn before taking home games to play. Our weekly sessions have focused on understanding feelings, praise and listening, exploring books and stories and playing with numbers and counting.

The current programme finishes at the end of November but we hope to run a second programme in the Spring term. More information to follow.
