The Importance of being involved in your child’s learning at school.

The first place where a child starts learning is at home. In their early age, children spend most of their time with parents \ carers and learn from them. So, as parents and carers, it’s our duty to look into the future of our children.

Experience is also important, due to the fact that learning does not start and end with the school hours, as it is an ongoing process in a child’s life. If the promotion of technology begins in early childhood, the child gradually will get used to finding their own ways of exploring and learning. This is where, parents \ carers have an important role in guiding the child for the right use of technology in this digital age. We have put together a few sites, listed below that support parents and carers.

Parents Education Network:

Parents Education Network (PEN) believes in the fact that the child suffers if the parent-school relationship is just adversarial without any collaboration. PEN provides a platform for parents to collaborate with educators, students and  other parents, to empower and bring academic and life success for kids. PEN conducts lectures, conferences and workshops to provide parents with all resources of education. It trains parent volunteers in local schools who create a link between PEN and school management. PEN provides many resources which help parents to design and develop their kids’ education.

PBS Parents:

PBS Parents is one of the best online resources that provides information to parents about their kids’ development from birth through early school years. Experts ’ forum allows you, as a parent to share stories, ask questions and post comments about your child’s education. The Education section offers a wide range of resources for subjects like science, maths and many more.

Great Schools:

GreatSchools authorizes and encourages parents to participate in their children’s development and educational success. It’s an excellent blog for parents, which covers everything related to education.

Proactive Parenting:

Proactive Parenting provides parents with numerous skills, tips, methods and content to help them create their own route for parenting. With Proactive Parenting, your parenting life will be easier, happier and less stressful.

We hope this list of blogs help support you in getting actively involved with your child’s education further and shaping a better future allowing them to be the very best versions of themselves, that they can be. #We.CAN
