Parent Volunteers

Did you know that around 80% of the difference in how well children do at school is dependent upon what happens outside of school?!  

Parents really do make THE difference, but they don't realise how how important they are in their  child's education and learning. By becoming a Parent Volunteer, you can help us pass on this message.

There may be parent volunteer opportunities coming up in the next few months.  Please get in touch if you are interested in finding out more.

The video below shows parent volunteers in other regions, who explain how they are transforming their communities.

We have a really exciting new group called Story Explorers which has been running with great success in Liscard primary school. The difference to other groups is that we train and support parent volunteers to deliver these groups to other parents, with a focus on parents and children reading & story-sharing together. 

It's been so successful that we trained more parents in Rock Ferry, Woodslee and Town Lane Primary Schools.

If you are interested in running a group with another parent in your school, we give full training (with a creche) and there's lots of support and encouragement from both FYT and the nursery staff, so if you hear of this opportunity in your nursery, you can either be trained to deliver groups, or just to come along and join in the group with your child.
