NORLAND COLLEGE and yogadoo research project
yogadoo HAS TEAMED UP WITH THE WORLD'S LEADING AUTHORITY ON EARLY YEARS EDUCATION AND TRAINING FOR A PIONEERING PIECE OF RESEARCH.
A parenting programme which combines parenting support with yoga to improve family life and wellbeing
Do you have a child aged 2-3 years? Are you: Tired of tantrums? Frustrated with meal times? Do you dread going to the shops? Then this 8-week training programme is for you.
The world-leading childcare and nanny training establishment, Norland College has teamed up with fellow award-winning Bath business, YOGADOO, to run a pilot training and research project. In this innovative piece of research, Early years specialists from Norland College will work closely with specialist pre-school and early years yoga teachers to support and train ten sets of parents and carers with parenting skills and basic yoga and relaxation techniques. The aim of this training, through the combination of support and training, will aim to relieve some of the pressures and stresses of parenting young children. The six 2-hour sessions (1 hour of parenting support followed by an hour of yoga with your child) will focus on different aspects of everyday family life such as mealtimes, self-care and sleep times.
The research aspect of the programme will be looking at parental wellbeing and your belief in your ability to apply these skills with effective outcomes for your family as well as family wellbeing. A variety of measures will be taken at the beginning, during and at the end of the course. These will consist of face-to-face interviews and online-standardised parenting measures at the beginning and end of the programme with an online behaviour checklist at the end of each week, focused on the particular theme for that week.
