Multicultural family support available
Family support centers in Seo-gu (district), Saha-gu and Nam-gu are conducting home-visit educational services for multicultural families. Specialists from the centers offer a variety of educational support including lessons on childcare, language and culture.
Parenting education services consist of classes detailing nurturing and information necessary to life in South Korea for stages of life ranging from pregnancy and infancy through childhood. Lessons in reading and culture are also available for children aged three to 12.

This course will run with 50 people for two hours every Monday and Wednesday either in person or without contact.
