The Parent House

55 Calshot Street, London N1 9AS


Our free courses and projects are designed to be as practical as possible for parents. That means combining carefully crafted syllabus with a teaching approach that prepares parents to put their new skills into action. Our crèche is available to all learners and classes are small enough for every parent to be treated as an individual.

If you would like more information or help to get involved in any of these opportunities please contact your local Help on Your Doorstep Office and one of our Connect advisers will be happy to help.
