Elmhurst offers Parent Workshops with Early Years Specialist

Elmhurst School for Boys

17th February 2015

Elmhurst School recently welcomed Early Years Specialist, Lena Engel to the school, to run a workshop for parents on the topic of “Promoting Positive Behaviour”.

Lena Engel is a freelance Early Years Specialist with a long career in teaching, as well as working with the Department for Education and as a part-time Ofsted Early Years Inspector.

Parents with children currently attending the school were invited to the interactive workshop and were joined by other local families with children of pre-school age, as well as Early Years practitioners from local nurseries.

The aim of the session was to enable parents to review what they do well and to consider what they may wish to do in the future, to improve opportunities for their children to learn to behave well and develop personal self-confidence.

Mrs Tanya Mawanda, Head of Lower School at Elmhurst, said: “We would like to extend our warmest thanks to Lena, for such an engaging workshop, full of useful and practical tips for parents. It was lovely to also welcome practitioners from other Early Years settings into the school, to add to the expertise of the evening. We are very much looking forward to our second workshop, later this month.”

A second workshop entitled “Promoting Children’s Independence at Home” will take place at Elmhurst School on Wednesday 25 February (7.00-8.30pm). This free, interactive session has been designed to empower parents to feel confident about their role in preparing children for their transition to school, by teaching them to be independent at home and demonstrating how a good partnership between home and school is crucial to children learning new skills.

Limited places are still available for the workshop on Wednesday 25 February. To book, please call the School Office on 020 8688 0661 or email office@elmhurstschool.net
