Q&A with Kevin from The Pyjama Foundation

With children now heading back for another school year, we chatted with Kevin (Program Manager) from the Pyjama Foundation and presenter of our upcoming session, Love of Learning.

Why should carers attend Love of Learning? 

Carers should attend this session to receive practical, and free, resources to make learning fun for your child(ren). Each participating family receives a pack of resources delivered by post. To also hear/learn practical ideas from our vast experience of engaging in learning with children who live in out of home care and for a recap of how Executive Function issues play out for your children and novel ideas for helping children who have these issues. 

What’s the most important thing when trying to engage my child in learning?

The most important thing is to make it fun and interesting!

Which carers should attend this session?

Carers with school-aged children. Most of the games and resources suit children operating at a Primary School level, however, some also suit secondary school students. 

What’s the most popular game or activity demonstrated this session used and regarded by carers?

It's too hard to choose just ONE! Some of the most popular games or activities include Tug of War (kebab stick game), Pig (game), and The fly swatter games. These are all in the kit you receive plus others.

What can we see in 2021 at The Pyjama Foundation?

Later this year we would like to present a Maths-only session that would address ideas for Primary and Secondary students so stay tuned.

 If you haven't already, register HERE for Love of Learning on Tuesday 23rd February from 9:30am - 1:30pm.
