It's Your Child's Life Parental Engagement Programme

It's Your Life is a well established charity who 3 years ago, branched out to Liverpool to replicate the highly successful, 'It's Your Child's Life' course across Merseyside.

Delivered by Ofsted rated outstanding teachers with vast experience of working in family support and SEND, this 6 week course provides parents with the tools they need to help their children thrive.By giving parents an insight into what their children are learning in school and and how they are being taught, parents are empowered and given the tools they need to be real partners in their child's learning journey. This will  improve life chances and outcomes for both parent and child alike making home and school a really happy, positive experience for all.With a sound knowledge and understanding of updated EYFS curriculum, course leaders weave in activities in a fun, relaxed way that help parents develop skills, habits and routines that have a really positive impact on home and school life. Skills learnt on this course last a lifetime and will benefit the whole family.

The course is underpinned by helping  parents to develop their knowledge, attitudes, skills, routines and habits in a non threatening, friendly and supportive way helping them to be the best they can be.

The course has been described as the 'Golden Ticket' between parent and child, parent and school and parent and community. Please click on our webpage to see the work we've been doing with around 350 parents in the city and the great testimonials on video, facebook and webpage. This course is beneficial for all parents of early years children. Parents of children with lower level or emerging SEND have found this course to be hugely beneficial too.

The course can either be run in your child's school or at the Millennium Centre, West Derby, Liverpool L12. Each session is between 1 and a half and two hours long with a plethora of resources to take away and try at home.
