When parents and caregivers are partners in their day-to-day activities, children thrive. Childcare staff work in collaboration with parents to offer each other support and insight into the lives of the children they care for and about.
Because a child’s identity is rooted in his/her family, there is a level of security that comes with knowing parents trust teachers, and a mutual respect exists.
Parent involvement occurs when parents participate in activities and take advantage of opportunities at their child’s early care and learning setting. This usually means that parents attend meetings or special events a program offers. Parents involvement also have different advantages :- Parent involvement helps to extend teaching outside the classroom, creates a more positive experience for children and helps children perform better when they are in school. It is essential for parents to support the learning that happens in preschool settings at home as well.
