14th September 2021, Parent-Carer Group
Here's an overview of this week's parent-carer group session...
This week we began our new Tuesday Parent-Carer Group, which will run weekly during term time. This half-term we're welcoming Barnardo's who will present their Shine+ workshop 9-10am. The workshop will support parents in regard to gaining more knowledge and understanding around areas such as child development, sleep and behaviour, etc. Parents/carers are encouraged to share their own experiences and discuss the topics, providing peer support to one another.
In addition, we're thrilled to have Ferdousi in attendance to provide bilingual support for our Bengali families. Ferdousi is a Personal Care Assistant working at Springside, she is friendly and approachable, and we hope her presence will enable more families to engage with our parent-carer group.
After the workshop, the session continues until 11am, this enables parents/carers to chat and enjoy refreshments.
This week we had a wonderful turn out with 8 parent/carers, it's great to see families from varied backgrounds coming together to share their experiences and support one-another.
We hope that you can join us next week.
