The Importance of Home-School Partnership
"It takes a village to raise a child. Parents, schools and community have a shared responsibility in a child's cognitive, social-emotional and physical development. Among all, parents play the central role in influencing a child's life. As educators, we are committed to working closely with the parents, and to share with them our knowledge and skills in early childhood education and care, so as to support the parents' role in nurturing their children."- Mrs Claire Ng, Founder.
Parents play the biggest role in the children's lives. We encourage ourparents to be involved actively in children’s learning by organizing regular home projects for parents to work hand in hand with their children, and to foster the parent-child bond.
Parents are also given opportunities to be physically involved in the children's learning at school, namely:
- Volunteering as chaperons during field trips or learning journeys
- Assisting teachers in organizing school or class activities
- Helping out in class activities such as arts and crafts.
- Sharing of your professional knowledge, talents and skills with the children
- Leading class activities such as story-telling or sports.
On a regular basis, we keep parents in the loop about their child's learning and development :
- Regular updates about children's learning progress and development through face-to-face, phone communication, e-mails and text messages
- Regular updates about school or class activities through mobile app and Facebook.
- Termly letters to inform about the curricular theme and learning objectives in the current term.
The Parent's Corner
We welcome parents to engage us in discussions on any matters related to early childhood development. A library of books and magazines related to early childhood education or parenting is also available at The Parents' Corner in the school. Parents are welcomed to browse or borrow these books if they are interested.
