Advantages of this course

The home needs to be a place where it’s natural and easy to join in, have a go, share thoughts and ideas, be curious, and experiment. It’s likely that you encourage your children to do this at home anyway, so the transition to home schooling won’t be as big of a change as some people worry that it will be. This course aims to reassure parents and carers who are having to create a home learning environment for the first time, and supports them on this transition from conventional schooling.
This course has a wealth of online resources and tools that parents and carers can use with their child, or direct them to use themselves if age and stage appropriate. The course also suggests Maths and English activities for the family to try at home or whilst running errands, and how to bring the outside in when children are not able to go outside as much as they would like to.
In the Activity section of the lesson, you will be asked to create a mood board for your child's interests and hobbies, and plan learning activities that cover different developmental areas.
There is also suggested extra reading that gives both practical information and links to websites and YouTube channels to expand knowledge

On completion of this course, you will have the option of purchasing a CACHE certificate. This certificate must not be confused with nationally regulated qualification achievement.
