Product DescriptionThe project gives parents and carers the opportunity to work with school staff as partners in their child’s development, sharing their knowledge of their child, their strengths and aptitudes. Using the project framework and resources, staff support the families’ understanding of ‘school readiness’ and provide opportunities for the families to meet and engage in fun activities to ensure their children are ready for learning. Once children have begun school, the school can continue to support parents to provide a stimulating home learning environment.
“With my older children I didn’t really come to things at school. Being involved with Mouse Club and getting to know the teachers changed everything. Now I have a good relationship with the school, I feel part of a community and I understand much more how to help my children. They are doing so much better now.” Parent, St Margarets Primary School
“The children loved getting Mouse ready for school and it has had a big impact on the nursery e.g. the previous year, thirty children weren’t toilet trained – this year it was three.” PSA, Stanley Grove Primary Academy “Mouse Club has had a positive impact in our school, and it has shifted the focus of the parents’ role, they are beginning to see themselves as partners in learning. The parents feel they are working together with school to support their child’s learning journey.” Teacher, Eaves Primary School
