School for Parents

School for Parents

Ideas and strategies for the education and development of your child

Being parents must be one of the most gratifying experiences in our lives, but it is also one of the most complex and difficult, due to the extraordinary changes taking place in society, and which leads us to rethink the way in which we wish to bring up our children.

Neither parents or children come with an instruction manual. We learn and grow, and build our relationship little by little, dealing with challenges often by trial and error and by looking back to how we were educated as children.

The objective of our School for Parents is to be a place for meeting and reflection. We aim to give you tools and useful guidance which will facilitate your job as parents from a perspective of dedication, patience, empathy, common sense and love for our children.

ELIS Villamartín’s School For Parents has the support of experts in different fields of education. These specialists will take us on a journey throughout the year, offering talks on diverse aspects of parenting. All the talks are free of charge.

 

WHERE: At El Limonar International School Villamartín.

WHO: All parents are welcome to attend our workshops, whether their children are already registered at the school or not.

HOW TO REGISTER: Send an email to schoolforparents@ellimonar.es indicating which workshop you would like to attend and the number of people who will come. We’ll write back confirming your place.
