Parents as Partners Canada
Parents as Partners.
It’s a three-way relationship between you, your child and their teacher. Successful parental engagement is continuous. Kids are born to learn, and parental engagement needs to start from infancy and be maintained throughout childhood and well into teenage years and early adulthood.
How can schools and parents support each other?
“Over 50 years of research links the various roles that families play in a child’s education- as supporters of learning, encouragers of grit and determination, models of lifelong learning, and advocates of proper programming and placements for their child.” – K. L Mapp (EdD) & P. J Kuttner
Why is the relationship between home and school so important…
Gains in learning are most prominent when parents and school staff work together to facilitate a supportive learning environment at both home and school. With this in mind, we have developed a range of resources for both parents and teachers so that we can effectively progress parent-teacher relations in order to foster positive parental engagement that will improve student academic achievement, well-being and productivity.
