Those first few months of a child’s life are really important for the development of their body and brain.

These play sessions are a great opportunity for parents to meet each other and to find out more about what their child is learning and how they can help.  

Little Explorers

(nurseries & schools)

Lots of fun for you and your child.

Weekly sessions are delivered in schools and nurseries across Wirral, led by school/nursery staff who have been trained by FYT.  If your child attends one of these schools or nurseries, speak to your teacher for more details.

The sessions include talk time, story and song time.  The talk time gives parents an opportunity to discuss an area of learning and development and take away ideas of how to support this further at home with their child.

Become a Parent Champion volunteer.

They are a parent, just like you, volunteering a small amount of time, meeting other parents to tell them about local childcare, other family services and sharing activity ideas for children.

This exciting group is run by parent volunteers trained to run groups with other parents & children together, reading books and story-telling.  It's been a big success at Liscard school, so more parents were trained in Rockferry, Woodslee & Town Lane primary schools.  If your child attends one of these nurseries, speak to your teacher for more details.
