We run the Baby Empowered Parenting Course every term for expectant and new parents.
As you may know, the Principal of The Gower School, Miss Emma Gowers, has run the Empowered Parenting Course since 2010. This popular course is designed for parents of 0-6 year olds, and runs over five sessions. Miss Gowers noticed a number of parents arriving at Empowered Parenting saying ‘I wish I’d done this course two years ago’. She also noticed as a parent herself that the information available for expectant and very new parents can be limited to the practicalities of birth, feeding and so on only. She feels strongly that there is lots of information about the first year or so, to encourage being a Montessori parent, which isn’t prioritised for new parents, and which she feels would benefit the child and family.
Parents can now undertake this course, which will give you food for thought, and some ideas to use until your child is 12-18 months old, at which point you can then enrol for the full Empowered Parenting Course if you wish to.
The spring term Baby Empowered Parenting Course will run a session on Friday 1st February 2019, 10am – 1pm at our nursery, 28 North Road, N7 9EY. The format will include discussion time, information, film clips and the opportunity to meet other new parents. The cost will be £35 per individual attending, or £65 for a couple – the fee will include a parenting book for you, as well as other handouts and information. Feedback from previous sessions has been extremely positive.
Please contact the nursery office for more information and to book your place.
