Lockdown has been an incredibly difficult time for parents but it has also given us opportunities to spend more time with our children and help them make progress towards their developmental goals. Together with Koala North West and My Child Can, we have been asking local parents about their “lockdown wins” - from big achievements to small. Check out our facebook and Instagram pages to see what parents have been telling us, or to share your own stories about what you and your family have achieved during lockdown.
In July we launched our online groups for local families - FYT Talk Together.
These ran over four-weeks, with parents and children from the Beechwood estate and Eastway, St Paul’s, Park and Liscard Primary Schools.
The sessions focus on the issues parents are most concerned about during these unprecedented times - the wellbeing of their children and the transition in September to nursery and school.
At one our recent groups, our parents helped us create a unique birthday card for our Patron, the Duchess of Cornwall!
