“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller.
Parent-teacher collaboration in the early years of a child’s education is of paramount importance. This partnership between parents and educators lays a strong foundation for a child’s development and academic success. Since the early years of a child’s life are a critical period of growth and development, the collaborative efforts of parents and teachers play a pivotal role in shaping a child’s future. This partnership creates a supportive environment that fosters learning, emotional well-being, and social development.
To bridge the gap between classroom teaching and parents, and to make them equal partners in their child’s learning, SALWAN MONTESSORI SCHOOL has initiated the launch of PARENT ACADEMY. In this academy, parents will have the opportunity to be exposed to different modules and strategies crucial to their child’s development.
The first Parent Academy session was conducted on September 16, 2023. Two modules were covered in this session: “Health and Nutrition,” conducted by Nutritionist & Dietician Ms. Shuchita Sharma (an external resource person), and “Socio-Emotional Concerns of Young Learners,” presented by in-house teachers. The session had a profound impact on the parents, providing them with a hands-on experience and opportunities for reflection on how to handle various situations. The session was a great success and received appreciation from all attendees.
