Parents As Partners

Parents As Partners

The Early Years Foundation Stage EYFS emphasizes that parents are a child’s primary educators and therefore encourages parents to contribute to their child’s learning. Parent partnerships are key to a successful Early Years experience for children and for them to gain the most out of their early education and reach expected levels of development.

This responsibility usually falls to the teacher to ensure an effective relationship is built and to share information at the beginning and end of the day and also at various other points such as meetings to discuss development.

Why are parent partnerships so important?
- Parents know their children best
- To create a shared level of expectation
- To share information about new levels of development, any concerns and any new likes or dislikes
- To keep up to date with what is happening inside and outside the school

Parents can feel secure to seek advice, help and support should they need improved practice and outcomes for the children, ensuring every child has their full individual needs met.We in Sound Mind British Montessori Academy enjoy working with our parents to ensure their children make good progress in school.
