Starting Right Parental Involvement
Parents or other caregivers are involved throughout the entire day. They are responsible for transitioning their children among the different areas of the classroom and working with them in each area. Classroom teachers help parents to provide strategies to use while working with their children. Once a week, parents leave the classroom for a parent group. The group is designed to be both supportive and educational in nature. Specific topics are addressed including transition to preschool, toilet training, generalizing classroom strategies to home and community environments, and behavior management techniques. During Friday’s individual intervention time, parents are able to meet individually with a parent coach.
