The Thinking Child

Teaching our children to think for themselves is one of the most important gifts we can give them.

The greatest legacy we can leave our children are the conditions for them to think for themselves and to have the confidence to do so.

This 8 week online course will bring together research & ideas from the Thinking Environment and leadership/coaching development in a way that’s practical and accessible for anyone.

We know we learn best by thinking for ourselves and with others so this programme will invite you to do both.

It is aimed at anyone who cares for children –  parents, grandparents, home schoolers, child minders and teachers.

The Flying Start Challenge for Mums

The 5 week Flying Start Challenge is taken from our unique Take 5 to Fly Programme which means you don’t need to find loads of time – if you have 5 mins a day or 25 mins, it could be transformational for you and your child.

This programme is specifically for mums of children of any age. It is a virtual course via your own app. You can choose to do it all or dip in and out. There will be daily videos, journal prompts,  inspiration and ideas for you and your child plus a weekly group coaching session for those who would like to think with other like minded mums.

  • It’s gentle and strong – letting you think for yourself and make it relevant for your family.
  • It incorporates research and ideas from the world of leadership development and coaching.
  • You learn with your child, with fun activities to do together, helping you become even more connected and closer.
  • There is a community of like-minded mums to learn alongside – they will become part of your village and share wisdom, ideas and encouragement.
