Beautiful New Beginnings Antenatal and Practical Parenting Courses
Meadow Lane, L12 5EA Liverpool
The school acceptance letter has arrived and your baby is going to be starting a brand new chapter in reception, in school! It doesn't seem possible right? What if they're not ready, more importantly what if you're not ready? What will they learn, how will you help them, what's expected of them? It's totally natural to feel a little bit out of your depth, I mean what actually is phonics? How will my child learn to read? What can I do at home to help them? And what about writing? And maths? What should my child actually know before they start school, what are they working toward being able to know by the end of reception and what can I do to help make sure that my child has got the best start possible and a bit ...of a head-start to help make starting school that little bit easier for them? Because as parents we just all want the best for our children right?
Here's where Beautiful New Beginnings comes in… my names Carolyn and I'm a qualified Early Years Teacher with over 10 years experience and have recently completed the SENDCO qualification at Masters Level to be able to advise, help and support children who have additional needs and their parents. My friend Rachel is a current reception teacher and play therapist with attachment parenting qualifications and a string of other qualifications too! Our course is going to give you all of the information you'll need to help your child at home over the summer to prepare for school. We will go through the documents used in school to support early reading and writing so you will leave with a good understanding of the simple games you can play with your children whilst out and about over the summer to help with their phonic knowledge and development. We will look at what your child will be working toward throughout their time in reception and ways you can help them to make good progress at home. We will look at ways of helping your child's fine motor skills in order to help them to prepare for writing and again the games that you can play at home which will support your child without them even knowing they're learning! We will also look at the Maths curriculum and ways to help with number development.
Our aim at Beautiful New Beginnings is to support parents at each stage of their child's development so there'll be plenty of time for questions and answers too. We believe learning should be fun. Many of our games and activities can be done whilst you're out and about, the best learning takes place when your child doesn't know its happening! You'll leave our course with a booklet of ideas, games and activities as well as a parents guide to the Reception Expectations so you know what you're aiming for as the year progresses.
So, if you'd like to know more about the ways your children will learn in school, what your children will learn in school and how best to help them get off to a flying start, this course is for you. This course is just for parents but we will be running a range of courses over the next few weeks which your children can attend too! We'll have free breakfast and snacks for the kiddies and a range of learning and development activities linked to the Foundation Stage Curriculum available too.
Cant wait to meet you all soon!
