ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) courses are held at CARIS during the academic year. CARIS recognises the need to provide these services for families in Haringey. Language barriers can inhibit social support networks, work prospects and result in isolation, impacting negatively on well-being and finance. This can affect children, slowing their development and education.
CARIS works in partnership with other professional accredited organisations to deliver ESOL courses. The classes are popular and enable students to progress onto further courses, manage daily living commitments due to increased levels of communication, and engage with children’s educational needs.
A crèche is also provided for children over 18 months.
