Welcome to the The Granny Cloud!

“Grannies” Skyping with children in India and Colombia!

Not only “grannies” of course, but grandpas too! And mums and dads and aunties and uncles and… While we do have many grannies it’s the attitude that matters – encouraging, nurturing, praising and offering guidance rather than directing, instructing and examining.

In this blog you’ll find reports from grannies about how their Skype sessions went – grannies sharing and learning from each other.

    I have only recently heard about ‘Granny Cloud’ although I am not a grandmother yet, I would like to become involved in helping children. I am a teaching assistant at a local primary school in England, I have two grown up children aged 22 and 18 and have spare time to assist if you need anyone.

    Finally someone is doing this. It takes energy outside the Establishment. Is anyone doing this in Costa Rica?
