Learning as a Family
East Renfrewshire's Family Learning Service works with families to help create positive learning environments in the home.
Parents and Carers can significantly affect a child's attitude to learning. Reading stories and nursery rhymes out loud, helping with homework, or playing learning games all help to support the learning your child gets in nursery or primary school.
At the request of nurseries, primary schools or parents, we can run workshops or classes. These can involve parents and children working together or just the parents, depending on what is being discussed.
Groups can cover a wide range of subjects from using numbers or 'Jolly phonics', to advice on handling children's behaviour. Often, games and activities are used which can then be used by families and used at home.
