Welcome to the Course

Hello and welcome to the course. Thank you for signing up. It's great to have you here!

The course is divided into ten sections:

  • Introduction: Helping Your Child to Learn
  • Fostering Learning
  • Thinking Tools and Techniques
  • Speaking and Listening
  • Language
  • Playing
  • Mental Maps
  • Telling Stories
  • Creative Thinking
  • Learning Together: You and Your Child

You can work your way through these in sequence, or you can do them in an order that suits you. My only advice would be to do sections 1 & 2 first as they lay the groundwork for all that follows.

Each section contains videos, a practical guide and a cheat sheet.

The videos are packed with insights and guidance about key aspects of learning. The guides present practical strategies, activities and techniques you can use with your child (and feel free to adapt, modify and develop them so they work for you). And the cheat sheets are concise, one-page summaries highlighting the key takeaways from each section and reminding you of the practical tools contained in the guides.

Finally, there is a course workbook. You will find this at the end of this section. The course workbook is optional. Take a look and decide if you want to use it. If you do, great! If not, that's OK too. The most important thing is to use the course and the course materials in a way that works for you.

So that's about it. Introduction over, course introduced and practicalities covered. All that's left for me to say is good luck, I hope you enjoy the course and I'm sure you'll do a brilliant job helping your child to learn.
