Parental Involvement is key to Children’s progress.
New research suggests that parents that take an active involvement in the education of their children can boost their performance by up to 5 months in comparison to their peers.
Ofsted have become more and more intersted in how Early Years settings engage parents in their child’s learning, and this new information is only going to increase the pressure. Working with fathers in particular seems to be an area that nurseries need to be focussing on. The full details of this story are available here and here.
At MBK we are aware of the difficulties faced when trying to engage parents and many of our courses look at supporting staff in this area. Our new Everyday Maths course pays particular attention to this issue and you can download a sample of the materials we provide and demonstrate to practitioners that attend the couse.
