PARENT COURSE

At Greenpark our intention is to be as supportive as possible of our families and equip them, with our assistance, to manage whole and happy families. The intended outcome of the Parent Course is that you would leave with a “toolbox” filled with the necessary “tools” to navigate the really challenging road of parenting.  

 

This course is available at a substantially subsidised price for present Greenpark Nursery School parents only.

 

The Course is facilitated by Jeffrey Kagan – Educational Psychologist   B.A. (Hons)(Rhodes) H.D.E. B.Ed. M.Ed. (Ed. Psych)(UCT)

 

Jeffrey has written a book “The Bubbles Float Over The Stars” and he can be contacted privately regarding Parent and Teenager Courses and consulting on jeffreykagan@vodamail.co.za

testimonials

Truly wonderful. Thank you for offering this course – it’s a wealth of knowledge and I’m sad it’s over!

I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and have looked forward to connecting with everyone on Wednesday evenings. I’m not sure what I will do next Wednesday!

I enjoyed the honesty and group interaction, the self-reflection and awareness of situations, and understanding that most people are going through the same thing.
