EMTAS Team - Support - Event aimed at supporting parents

These events, akin to a coffee morning, are a successful way of engaging with ethnic minority parents including Travellers. They provide an ideal opportunity to impart key information about provision in the Early Years, including the importance of continuing to use first language at home. They also offer parents and carers a context in which they are empowered to ask questions.
