Here you will find information about the parent lead course and activities we run here at Greenfields.
So what is the Parent 2 Parent Course?
Firstly, this is NOT a parenting course. It’s run by parents of Greenfields who know different approaches work for different families. There are no professionals involved and no one is ever judged. Our aim is simply to introduce you to ways to help your child become the best learner they can be. It’s as simple as that!
How does it work?
Over the course of 6 weeks (which actually passes really quickly) we introduce you to different aspects of learning, including the human brain, building self-esteem, confidence and resilience, understanding emotions and learning through mistakes, to name a few. Don’t worry, this isn’t in lecture form, we use a whole range of visual resources, practical activities and there is plenty of discussion. Each week you will receive a booklet with all of the relevant information in to build up your own P2P library for reference.
Not sure if it’s right for you?
That’s fine. We know that not everyone feels comfortable going on courses, it can feel very daunting. We also understand that it’s difficult for people to commit to 6 weeks. As parents that started as participants on the course we appreciate how you may be feeling, but please don’t let that stop you from finding out more. We are very accommodating and will do everything we can to ensure you can access this course, so please feel free to speak to any of the P2P leads, Mrs Cook or a member of the office staff.
