Learners Celebrate at Caversham Children’s Centre
Reading Borough Council Press Release
A GROUP of parents has successfully completed a childcare qualification while their children have had fun learning at Caversham Children’s Centre.
Over the past two years, the Caversham Children’s Centre has supported learners in working towards Levels 2 and 3 NVQ Awards in Childcare by providing New Directions classes and a crèche facility on site.
While their parents studied, the children were also learning as the crèche uses the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework to promote and chart child development.
Their achievements will be celebrated on Friday 12th December – the last day of the Caring for Children course – with a special event at the Children’s Centre. The children will be presented with their very own ‘learning journey’ – notes and photographs that document their development during their time at the crèche - while everyone will enjoy juice and cake.
Lead Member for Children’s Services, Cllr Jan Gavin said:
“Congratulations to the parents and children at Caversham Children’s Centre who have been involved with this learning initiative. It is a great example of how Children’s Centres offer families resources and support that they can use to make positive changes in their lives.”
