On 6 September, Tea4Kidz joined forces with the Western Cape Department of Education and learning specialist Renee Lighton from LightOn Education, in sponsoring a workshop targeted at parents and teachers from the Western Cape community.
"Both home and school play equal roles in early childhood development and the workshop highlighted the importance of teachers and parents supporting each other to educate and develop future generations," explains Candice Sessions Marketing Manager of Tea4Kidz. "Our Tea4Kidz social mission is to provide tools, products and information that enlightens and aids parents and teachers, empowering them to make the right choices for the children in their care."
The workshop was attended by over 150 parents and teachers from the local community who spent an informative and interactive afternoon learning new skills to help children grow and learn through play. Each person was provided with a parenting booklet from Tea4Kidz that included parenting tips, recipes, healthy lunchbox ideas and educational games. This is the first in a series of workshops that Tea4Kidz and LightOn Education will be running.
"The role of workshops like these is to ignite conversations and interactions. Through sharing, we develop an "CAN" attitude no matter the circumstances and it is this connection and love of learning through play that is sustained and lifelong,"states Renee Light on founder of Light On Education.
Tea4Kidz is a naturally caffeine-free and sugar-free range of Rooibos teas, designed specifically with kids in mind.
