Additional Information

We directly help children in Northern Ireland get a better start in life by delivering programmes with children and families in schools. Families Connect focuses on supporting parents and children to learn together. It helps parents to support their children’s learning in three key areas: Literacy and language development Numeracy Emotional development The eight-week programme provides a series of activities, techniques and games that parents and carers can do with their children at home. Each activity encourages parents and children to spend quality time together by talking about specific topics and reflecting on what they already do to support their children’s learning. Parents also discuss the science behind the programme’s activities. These informal workshops invite parents to explore new games and approaches that might help them to support their child’s learning at home. Access is through schools that run this programme, families are unable to self refer
