How Multiply can help you to support your children with numbers
We all want children to feel confident with numbers, even if we struggle with maths ourselves.
Everyone can help children with maths. You don't need to be an expert, and we can help!
Our Multiply courses for parents have been designed to build your confidence with numbers and to help support your children with maths.
You don't need to feel unable to help your children with maths because teaching methods are different to when you were at school, or because you don't feel confident with numbers yourself.
With a little help from us you can:
- build your number confidence and skills
- feel more prepared for when children ask you for help
- help pass your confidence on to them
