Workshops

We believe in the importance of developing a strong partnership between children, staff, and parents/carers. Thus, we regularly organise events for parents/carers in order for them to learn about some of our methods and strategies.

Here, you’ll be able to download copies of our workshop presentations for your own use.

Don’t forget to suggest ideas for future workshops!

Thank you!

Dr Sebastien Chapleau, Madame Jenna Crittenden, Madame Sarah Edwards and Madame Louise Holland
