School for Parents

La Caseta in Gràcia has decided that it is not only kids that need to learn about family life but that their parents could benefit from some extra lessons too!  From February, the play centre and alternative pre-school is running a series of Saturday sessions aimed at parents and carers for children aged 0-6 years old.  The informal classes cover a range of topics from sibling conflict to quality playtime and how to make a super Carnival costume.  Education professionals, psychologists and creative course-leaders will be particpating in the group sessions that will run until the end of April.
