What our parents say about us…

‘This stay and play session is fabulous. Hands down the best I’ve been to. My daughter is now 27 months and we come every week. Its a friendly, relaxed group which is so welcoming. Not at all clicky like some I have been to. There’s always something new to do, and lots to learn. The other parents are lovely and Cal and Nic create an amazingly friendly atmosphere. It’s a lovely way to spend a Friday afternoon.”

    positive review  I attended a Moving Up to Yr 1 course run by Carolyn of Beautiful New Beginnings and it was really helpful. We learnt about what children cover in Yr 1 and ways that we as parents can practically support them. One of the things that I have found difficult during my daughter’s first year of primary school is that there often isn’t a lot of communication between teachers and parents (understandable given their workload). This was a massive change from preschool where parents were involved in learning a lot. I found I didn’t really know how I could support my child other than listening to her read. This course bridges that gap nicely and gives parents easy, fun and practical ideas to help our kids with their school learning. Thank you! 👍

    5 star review  Great informative course. The 6 weeks absolutely flew over unfortunately. Carolyn is brilliant and always willing to help you out, even outside the course times. Highly recommended.

    5 star review  After attending the school readiness course on the 12th of August I am feeling more relaxed about the children I care for going off to school. The course reconfirmed how by playing games taking time to read and modelling my own mathematical language the children are learning so much without them thinking of it as WORK. It is all fun and games to them. Both Cal and Rachel were knowledgeable and clear with great ideas. Such as putting post it notes in unusual places for the children to see words in a different way. I wished I could have attended the following weeks activity sessions. I hope that they will be doing more so I can build on my knowledge gained in the school readiness course. A big thank you girls very impressed.
