Courses for Parents


At Hannah More we run many courses and activities for families. Most classes are free and have a crèche that runs alongside them.



Our new Reception children will start school on 9th September and children will either do a morning or an afternoon session for the first week. There are also special workshops for Reception parents during this first week. Come along to meet other parents, find out what's on and hear about how we teach reading. There is also a creche, so any younger children are welcome to come along as well. We hope to see you there!


We were very pleased to run some playdays this summer, funded by 'Friends of Hannah More' and Children in Need. There wil be more playdays next summer!  There was also a special summer reading opportunity run in conjunction with Stanfords bookshop. More details here...


At the end of last term, we gave every child a scrapbook kit to take home. We hope you have made a lovely scrapbook over the summer, with lots of news about what you have been up to. There will be some prizes for the most interesting scrapbooks!


A new parenting course will run in September. This is called 'Incredible Years' and is a 12 week course. Parenting young children can be a difficult time for both parents and children. Learn how to help your child learn and grow emotionally and socially. Nurturing, coaching, and playing with your child can be a key to success as they grow.
