Technology & Media – Parental Workshop


We are proud to host the second of our four parental workshops this weekend, Saturday 22nd March.

The workshop runs from 9.30 am until 12.30 pm and is entitled ‘Technology and Media’. Dorothy Marlen will explore how we understand the senses associated with the developing child, and how to best be aware of the particular sensitivities of those senses.

In this context Dorothy will discuss how to best find answers to the challenges of modern life and technology in the education of the young child.

Booking for any of the workshops is FREE and can be done online by clicking here.

A leaflet about all 4 workshops can be downloaded as a pdf here: YSS Parental Workshops

We are also offering a free creche at each workshop catering for children aged 3-7 years. The creche is held in one of our kindergartens and run by our kindergarten teachers. Places are limited, and to book a creche place please contact the school office on 01904 654983.

We look forward to seeing you!
