Family Connect – free online sessions for parents and carers

Family Connects are one-off online events providing an opportunity to connect with other parents and carers via Zoom and learn about topics relevant to families and children aged 0-5. Plus you will share ideas in how to support children’s early education and each other.

Exploring schemas

6th March, 6 – 7pm

Have you noticed your child likes to throw food from their high chair at mealtimes? Or separate the different foods on their plate? Or maybe they like to move things from one place to another? It could be that your child is exploring a schema. Schemas are repeated patterns of play which help children to learn and make sense of the world. This session will explore what schemas are and the things you may observe in your children, as well as consider ways that you can support your child with simple activities you can do in the home.
