Relationships in the Preschool Classroom
why is the home and school connection so important?
As we know, a positive connection between home and school is important. But why?
As preschool teachers, we are sometimes the very first teacher a child has. Parents are uneasy with taking the first step in letting go and a lot of trust goes into leaving your child with a stranger! Building up that trust comes from how you connect your student's families at home with the family you are building at school. It isn't just a weekly newsletter email. A strong Home and School Connection goes deeper.
When a child feels supported both at home and at school the sky is the limit at what they can achieve! Sometimes, as preschool teachers we are only with our students a couple of days a week. Helping parents learn about what they can do at home to encourage growth and learning is part of our responsibility.
