About this course

Learn together in lively and fun workshops aimed at equipping parents/carers with the skills and confidence to develop their child’s physical, creative and technical competencies. Take away your learnings and introduce them to your home environment for yourself and your child to enjoy.

You will be accessing all three of these sessions as part of the workshop, and will be split into groups to rotate between all three 45min sessions 

Learn to Move 

  • The session will provide: 
  • Practical examples and training for developing physical skills with your child 
  • Stimulus for adapting your home environment to promote the development of a child’s motor skills 


  • Using toys and tablets/smart phones and free software to create stop motion animation to create short animation stories that will be shared with the whole group at the end of the workshop  

Calm and Create with Colour 

  • Explore how music stimulates different creative ideas and emotions using a variety of colour resources and tools (paint, textiles, crayons, ink etc) to look at how art can express emotions 

This workshop will enable parents to engage creatively with their children at home using free/low cost resources. 

All resources are provided for this course
