Parents as Teachers
1.When parents and families have the support and resources they need to facilitate children’s healthy development, they are building a strong foundation for future growth.
2. You are your child’s first teacher. It is important for parents to understand this concept.
3. Healthy development depends on the quality and reliability of a child’s relationships with the important people in his or her life, both within and outside the family.
4. Through advocacy and outreach, Parents as Teachers serves as a voice for early childhood education and champions the critical role of parental involvement and early intervention in the education continuum
5. Through data-driven research and result-oriented initiatives, we have discovered that many of these problems can be solved by making a few easy changes during the critical ages of zero to three. Yes, 0-3.
6. The Urban Child Institute is made up of researchers, strategists, practitioners, parents, and community members dedicated to turning knowledge and research into measurable change.
7. In a randomized trial in four counties in Southern California, adolescent mothers who received case management and Parents as Teachers were significantly less likely to be subjected to child abuse investigations than control group mothers who received neither case management nor Parents as Teachers.
8. This vision will be realized by advocating for public policies that are good for children, initiating prevention-based strategies, and launching intervention programs that focus on children in our community. We strive to be a recognized leader in child advocacy research, a trustworthy community partner and a home for expertise, advice.
All of the websites had one thing in common..... The well being of the student.
How well a student performs in school is not just the responsibility of the teacher. It is also the responsibility of the parents. If the teacher and the parents work together the odds of the student succeeding will raise dramatically.
As a teacher I want the parents of my students to be envolved in all aspects of learning. I plan on doing this by giving different options and requiring parents to be envolved in at least one. Whether volunteering for a field trip or just attending a conference by giving several options you encourage parental envolvement.
