With home-schooling a daily routine for most children countrywide, there is a lot of pressure on parents and teachers to come up with innovative learning techniques that don’t require vast resources and preparation time. As an organisation committed to Early Childhood Development (ECD), Laager Tea4Kidz and Renee Lighton of LightOn Education have compiled a series of Laager Tea4Kidz Positive Parenting Sessions offering practical tips and advice.
“Laager Tea4Kidz has been involved in a number of free ECD workshops in collaboration with renowned author and educationalist, Renee Lighton, as a way to empower parents, teachers and caregivers with valuable tools for improved education,” explained Candice Sessions, Marketing Manager of Laager Tea4Kidz.
“Laager Tea4Kidz has always been driven by the mission to empower and encourage parents through healthy products, and informative ideas and tips. With the need for physical distancing, as well as the considerable pressure parents and teachers are under during this pandemic, we have found an innovative way to continue inspiring those looking after young children with easily accessible, fun-to-use ideas during this time. These Laager Tea4Kidz Positive Parenting Sessions will be freely available on our Laager Tea4Kidz YouTube channel, providing quick but valuable learning guidance.”
Renee Lighton is an educational consultant, author, speaker, life coach, founder of LightOn Education and a mother. She is passionate about providing tools to support learning through play in the home and wants to share the message: ‘You are enough. You have enough. You have got this!’
“As a mom and educator, I have always loved and valued the learning through play approach,” explained Renee. “This way of learning, combined with the mindset that I’m in business for ‘me’ and ‘we’, allows me to add value in ways that combine my foundation in education, with a commitment to personal growth and transformation.”
Commenting on the Laager Tea4Kidz Positive Parenting Series, Renee said parents could expect short, practical ideas, tips and tools using the ‘KISSES’ approach.
“These little ‘KISSES’ are little messages which are easy to wire and inspire, and flow from me to the Laager Tea4Kidz community,” said Renee.
In addition to the Laager Tea4Kidz Positive Parenting Sessions, Laager Tea4Kidz will be offering free copies of Renee Lighton’s e-book, ‘Let’s Get Ready for Card Games’ via the More4Momz website. The book, which is usually valued at R200, is packed with creative card games and ideas which develop skills of children across all ages. This special offer is valid until Sunday, 7 June.
