Philosophy

It is not only the parents’ duty to educate their children, it is also their right and it should be their greatest joy and passion.

These Family Enrichment courses encourage parents to educate the whole person, nurturing the psychological, developmental, intellectual and cultural aspects of each child.

Early childhood education is a key factor in the development of the character of the future adult.

Method

The modules were developed by the International Federation for Family Development (IFFD) using Harvard’s case study method, an interactive technique for analyzing real life family situations in a practical and positive way.

Course Feedback

The sessions didn't tell us "what to do" but gave good tools to use ourselves.
