Children learn better when their parents and grown-ups get involved. When grown-ups at home echo what the teachers are saying in school, learning becomes deeper and broader. Our family learning courses promote the joy of learning together, they will help you understand the school curriculum and update your knowledge on how children learn and develop. Together, you can raise your children’s attainment and help them on their exciting learning journey.

WAES offers a range of workshops, many of which are free.

Learn practical skills or engage in fun activities. There is something for everyone here.
