The Harvard Family Research Project defines educational involvement of families as activities that parents conduct at home and in early childhood settings to directly or indirectly support their child's learning. Involvement at the toddler and preschool level has a number of lifelong benefits, such as establishing the importance of education and developing a network of helpful connections. Parental involvement at this critical point provides the child with a springboard that makes the move to elementary school a more tranquil transition.
At Sarodgini Early Learning we encourage parent's to participate in their child's education. We have an open campus policy, which means parents can visit and work alongside their child anytime of the day (Just let the staff know ahead of time). This helps children know that parents are a part of the learning process.
Other ways parents can get involved:
- Attend Family Involvement Events
- Chaperone School Field Trips
- Help with school events and teacher appreciation
- Donate toy/supplies
- Help broker community partnerships
Support and cooperation with staff and teachers is also very helpful :)
