Parental involvement is an important aspect of a child’s development. Here, we encourage parents and teachers to work together as a team. Parents must realise that we are early childhood educators and are here to help you in raising and educating your child but no one can replace your importance as a parent. You need to take an interest in your child’s work and not leave everything to the teacher. Parents who spend quality time together with their children, guiding them in their work and so on will notice that their child does much better than others.
We encourage our parents to talk to our teachers and to go through the Progress Reports. Consult us as to what can be done to help your child in areas that he/she might be poor in. Do not point fingers at teachers when the reports say they are weak in certain areas as this does not help your child. Your child will benefit more if you work together with us.
For our full-day children age 6, extra lessons will be given to those are weak in their lessons on certain conditions. Please contact our office to find out more.
Here are some suggestions on how you can help your child:
– Reading scheme – 5 mins, 3X a week
– Phonics and spelling – 5 mins, 2X a week
– Maths – 5-10 mins, 2X a week
– Bahasa Malaysia – 5 mins, 2X a week
– Mandarin – 5-10 mins – 3X a week
Do not spend too much time on each subject. You must remember that they are still kids and they need to play. Playing is part of learning too. Let them go outdoor to play to keep them healthy, strong and to develop their large motor skills. A little bruise and dirt here and there will not hurt your child. In fact, it will help them to be tougher and stronger.
