Parent Academy

CDL Parent Academy Logo 755x500

The Collège du Léman Parent Academy provides regular, bite-sized parenting and education advice for our community. This advice is brought to life in a series of short videos and presentations as well as through Q&A and coaching sessions.  

The themes and topics are based on the requests of parents through our Parent Academy survey.

Our CDL staff have more than 1,600 years of education experience between them and are the main contributors.

There are two sections of the Parent Academy programme:
Hear from the Teachers and Parent+ Coaching. Read below for more information.
The calendar for 2021-2022 is available HERE.

Hear from the Teachers

Through a combination of short videos and virtual Q&A sessions with a panel of teachers and experts, we pass on handy general tips about how to help your children with their learning and wellbeing.

Parent Coaching

Targeting the needs of school children, the Parents Plus Children’s Programme shows parents how to communicate positively with children, illustrating ways to encourage good social skills, as well as well-researched methods to tackle behaviour and emotional problems.

The aim of the course is to help parents not only solve discipline and other childhood problems but also for parents to develop closer and more satisfying relationships with their children.

The course is free to attend and open to all CDL’s parents and carers. The group will meet for nine 2-hour sessions.

Our school counselling team will be offering this fantastic parent coaching programme. This will start with parents of older age groups and then roll out across age groups over time. This year, we will be offering Parent Plus coaching sessions as follows:

  • Secondary parents: 9th November - 25th January
  • Pre-School & Primary parents: 1st March - 24th May

Location: Cervin building, room 216

Please register, by contacting Ms Betty van Pappelendam at betty.vanpappelendam@cdl.ch.
