We wrap up our Week of the Young Child 2022 celebration where school readiness begins for children: families. Families come in all shapes and sizes and look different for each child. It’s important to celebrate all the different ways families can be and to let children know their family is special and loved!
WHY FAMILIES AND SCHOOLS ARE NATURAL PARTNERS
Children can thrive when their home and school or child care environments work together.
IT STARTS WITH FAMILIES | Families are children’s first teachers. Families – you can turn everyday routines into learning moments.
CLEAR COMMUNICATION | Communication between families and schools/child care centers allows you both to discuss children’s development and educational needs.
SHARED GOALS | Working together allows you to set goals that can benefit children at home and at school.
