Parent workshops

PASCAL Training Ltd – Sessions/workshops for parents and child carers -  generally sessions are planned for 2 hours and families will hopefully have access to a crèche if you are able to provide this.          

 

The sessions can be booked and delivered individually or planned as a 4-week package which will reduce costs. Below are a variety of sessions solely adapted to suit parent/carers which we have already successfully delivered. Alternatively workshops can be planned and personalised to suit your own requirements.
