Our free courses and projects are designed to be as practical as possible for parents. That means combining carefully crafted syllabuses with a teaching approach that prepares parents to put their new skills into action. Our crèche is available to all learners, and classes are small enough for every parent to be treated as an individual.

Our services are designed to support our local community. Please do get in touch if you can’t see what you’re looking for.
