Parent Connect online sessions

Parent Connects are one-off online events providing wellbeing and other advice. They are an opportunity to connect with other parents and carers via Zoom and learn about topics relevant to families and children aged 0-5 and share ideas in how to support children’s early education and each other. 

Process over product: finding the joy in 'doing'

There are endless examples across the internet of crafty projects for under-fives: whether it's making a felt Santa at Christmas, a bunny-themed hat at Easter or a card covered in hearts for Valentine's Day. But do these activities - which focus on creating a specific and pre-determined end result - actually support early learning and development?

During this free, interactive Parent Connect session, we will be exploring what is meant by ​'process over product'​ and how this idea can help us to understand the joy children find in ‘doing', rather than focusing on the end result. 

We will also share sustainable activity ideas that support children’s learning and development while also being kind to our planet.


The Parent Connect session takes place 6.30pm - 7.30pm on Wednesday 15 June. Book now.

It is then repeated at 6.30pm-7.30pm on Thursday 16 June. Book it now.


These free sessions are being offered to parents as part of the Alliance's National Week of Play.
