About Us

At CALAT Family Learning we love to broaden horizons, and what better way to do that than through learning together with your children? Research has shown that families are our first and most important teachers, and that parental support is a key factor throughout a child’s education. All our Family Learning courses are designed to build confidence, support speech and language in early years, and are about having fun together whilst allowing for individual creativity and expression through art, creativity and life outside of the classroom.
