Home-Start has developed the unique Big Hopes Big Future programme in England to work directly with parents and children and help them to build the skills they need to be ready for the first day of school.
Around 600,000 five year olds start school for the first time each September, yet a recent study estimated that almost half will not be ready for education.
The result is that teachers are spending increasing amounts of time and resources helping children who do not have basic skills such as being able to hold a pencil, recognising their name when it’s written down, or being toilet trained.
It is well recognised that a child’s readiness for school can have a significant and lasting impact on their future educational achievement, as well as making those first weeks and months at school a happy and memorable experience, letting them take those first steps with confidence.
Home-Start Wirral are offering a valuable opportunity for Mums and Dads to participate in a five week family learning course for two hours each week, allowing them to give their child the best possible start on a journey of life long learning.
Home-Start Wirral also offer ‘Stay & Play’ sessions for children while Mums and Dads are attending the course.
