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.
Delvene NeilsonDirector of Education and mother of two
Like all parents, I wear many different hats by juggling the numerous roles of a mother, educator, wife, worker, daughter and friend. The list can be endless. Fortunately, my passion for learning and education seems to connect all of these facets of my life. A teacher by trade, I have spent much of my post university life teaching in schools in England, South Australia and Victoria, then venturing into some educational consultancy roles and now finding a unique place in 3P Learning.
It is in my most challenging role as a parent of a 6 year old daughter and 4 year old son, that I am constantly reminded of how amazing learning is. Their curiosity and energy to ask and understand inspires me. It inspires the work that I contribute to at 3P Learning which is all about keeping learning real, exciting and purposeful. My philosophy is that there should be no barrier to learning and I love exploring the endless possibilities. As a parent and educator it matters to me that my kids will always love to learn and I feel fortunate that I can help contribute to foster this in all families in my working role.
