Laura Henry’s My Family Week – The First International Celebration Of Family

Here at MFF we champion inclusivity within families so we are proud to support Laura Henry’s ‘My Family Week’ which kicks off in just over two weeks. My Family Week is the first international celebration of the family.

Children around the world will get the opportunity to celebrate the uniqueness of their family, irrespective of circumstances including children with same-sex parents, those who are fostered, disabled, have step families or half brothers and sisters, are bereaved, blended, those who are adopted or who live with grandparents and other family members.

International Early Years expert, Laura Henry, has been busy creating resources for My Family Week, providing fun and educational activities for settings, schools and parents.

There will be a soft launch on Friday 13th October, 2017, before the week-long celebration from Monday 16th to Sunday 22nd October.

Laura is delighted to announce the University of Northampton as the academic partner for My Family Week, with support from other organisations including NEyTCO, the Pre-school Learning Alliance and Gingerbread.

Settings, schools and parents will be able to take part in a virtual My Family Week party, on Friday 20th October, where they can share their news online using the hashtag #MyFamilyWeek.
