The foundation of a child’s learning journey is a crucial phase that shapes their path to success. As parents ourselves, we understand the significance of parents’ involvement in your child’s school and education and the impact it can have on their future. Foundree, committed to empowering parents and educators, recognizes the essential role parents play as partners in their child’s educational journey. In this blog, we will look at how parental guidance, academic engagement, and parents’ involvement in education create a strong foundation for our children’s growth and development.
From the moment a child is born, parents become their first teachers and role models. Parental guidance lays the groundwork for a child’s learning journey. Beyond merely providing the necessary resources for learning; rather, it involves fostering a thirst for knowledge. Children who receive strong parental guidance are more likely to excel in their academic pursuits and show increased academic engagement.
Academic engagement refers to a student’s active involvement in their learning process and academic activities. When parents actively participate in their child’s education, they contribute significantly to fostering academic engagement and creating a positive learning environment at home. Such an environment instills a sense of curiosity and eagerness to learn, which directly impacts a child’s academic performance.
As children embark on their learning journey, they require a strong support system to overcome challenges and reach their full potential. Parents, as partners in this journey, must provide learning support tailored to their child’s needs. This support may include assisting with homework, engaging in educational activities outside of school, and seeking additional resources when necessary. In the learning journey of your child, the Foundree app serves as a bridge between parents and schools. With just a few taps on their smartphones, parents gain access to real-time updates on their child’s academic progress. This immediate access to information enables parents to stay involved in their child’s learning journey, allowing them to provide timely encouragement and support. One of the key features of the Foundree app is the day’s updates, where parents can receive detailed reports of their child’s daily activities at school. In addition to keeping parents informed, the Foundree app offers a unique and heartwarming feature: the ability to share a child’s day activities with parents and vice versa.
Parental involvement goes beyond academic engagement; it also encompasses active participation in a child’s extracurricular activities and personal interests. By attending school events, such as annual day, sports competitions, and artistic performances, parents show that they value their child’s passions and talents. This kind of parents’ involvement in education and unwavering support boosts a child’s self-esteem and motivation.
The Parent-Toddler Program at Foundree creates a structured yet fun-loving environment for toddlers through activities such as parent-toddler yoga, musical bonding, sensorial activities, and storytelling, fostering enhanced physical, linguistic, cognitive, and socio-emotional skills. This sense of partnership instils a growth mindset in the child, encouraging them to embrace challenges and persist in the face of difficulties.
Parents’ involvement in schools can catalyze positive changes in the education system. When parents engage in school governance and decision-making processes, they bring a unique perspective that complements the expertise of educators and administrators, take Parent Teacher Meets at Foundree for instance. PTMs provide a valuable opportunity for parents to engage in open dialogues with teachers, gaining insights into their child’s progress, strengths, and areas for improvement. Additionally, Spotlight Event at Foundree is a celebration of every child’s unique talent and capability. In these sessions, parents come to the school, and the focus is centred on one child at a time. Moreover, we have Parent Orientations at Foundree which is an immersive and enlightening experience where parents actively participate in all the activities their children engage in. Through this hands-on approach, parents gain firsthand insights into their child’s educational journey, fostering a deeper understanding of the learning process.
The key to fostering a robust educational foundation for our children lies in the unwavering partnership between parents, and educators. By providing the necessary tools, resources, and support, Foundree empowers parents to take an active role in their child’s educational journey. Through parental guidance, academic engagement, and parents’ involvement in schools, we can create a nurturing environment where young minds thrive and excel.
