From improving children's school readiness to encouraging positive engagement with peers, the benefits of engaging families early will impact the young children in your care long after they leave your classroom. We offer a wide range of resources that teachers can use to encourage parental involvement and to help build a bridge between home and school.
The children in today’s early childhood classroom are more culturally, linguistically, and ability diverse than ever. As a teacher, your challenge is to partner with each family through recognizing their individual strengths, concerns, priorities, and resources. The Welcoming Classroom: Building Strong Home-to-School Connections for Early Learning offers practical ideas for creating a welcoming atmosphere for families that will encourage them to participate in their children’s learning community.
