Parents & Education

When parents are involved in their children’s education, both children and parents are likely to benefit. Researchers report that parent participation in their children’s schooling frequently:

  • enhances children’s self-esteem
  • improves children’s academic achievement
  • improves parent-child relationships
  • helps parents develop positive attitudes towards school
  • and a better understanding of the schooling process.

Despite these advantages, it is not always easy for parents to find time and energy to become involved or to coordinate with schedules for school events. For some parents, a visit to school is perceived as an uncomfortable experience, perhaps a holdover from their own school days. Others may have their hands full with a job and other children. Our teaching staff strive to increase communication with parents and encourage involvement in children’s learning experiences.

On this website we have included tips and information specifically for parents. We hope you find them helpful.
