The red carpet was rolled out at Suffield Park Infant School and Nursery as parents and carers picked up awards from Cromer deputy mayor John Frosdick.
The level 1 and 2 qualification certificates were awarded for successfully completing a ten week course called How Children Learn.
The course included discovering how the brain is structured and used by children to learn.
Mr Frosdick said: 'We value education in Cromer and we know that the earlier parents get involved in the learning of their children that it gives children a head start.' Using their new understanding, parents and carers were better able to help their children with reading, counting, maths, riding a bike and tidying their room.
The course was led by Sandra Nunes Vaz of Hand in Hand Learning. It followed a successful bid for £7,500 for the three schools in Cromer to the Big Lottery Fund Awards for All by parent support adviser Will Campbell.

Sarah Ballard, one of the parents who completed the course, said: 'I have learned a lot about the different types of intelligences that children have. It has made me stand back and think more about children as individuals with their own learning style.'
