Who We Are

We are a small national charity that was set up by parents to support family engagement in children’s learning.

Family engagement has been shown through research to make a positive and powerful difference to children's learning experiences, education outcomes and life opportunities.

In particular, it can have a positive influence on their:

  • Early literacy and mathematics development.
  • Transition to preschool and school.
  • Social and relationship skills.
  • Confidence to try and willingness to keep on trying.
  • Beliefs about the importance of learning and education.
  • School grades.
  • Career dreams and career opportunities when they leave school.

We value the role and strengths of families and we offer safe spaces for parents and other important adults in children's lives to talk and learn together.

Our programs focus on boosting confidence and sharing knowledge that families can use to help their young children with reading, writing and maths.

We also run training workshops so that participants in our programs can become presenters.

We love helping to build good relationships between families, teachers and community organisations because we know how important these are for children's well-being and success.
