OVO Foundation has funded us to support the development of Early Literacy in Trafford and Liverpool schools with the early years Mouse Club transition and home learning project.
Mouse Club supports staff to develop positive relationships with parents/carers as their children start in school or settings, using a toy mouse as a transitional object. The child and “Mouse” prepare for school together and learn at home together.
The project is structured around fun home activities which support aspects of school readiness and home learning in the early years. These are delivered at stay and play sessions following a “model, mentor, coach” approach that has parent partnership at its heart.
