What does parental involvement in children’s learning mean?

Learning at home: Parents are the first and ongoing educators of their own children and, as such, should receive information and support to help develop their child’s learning at home, in the community and at school.

What are the benefits of parents getting involved?

The benefits for the children are:

• It is easier for children to learn when they get encouragement at home

• They will do better and achieve more when their parents are involved

• Children get access to more activities in and out of nursery when there are more adults to help

• Their concerns can be sorted out quicker when their parents have a positive relationship with nursery staff

• They are happy when their parents are enjoying events in the nursery.

The benefits for parents are:

• Their children do better when they are involved

• They are better able to help and encourage their children

• They have more information about their children’s education

• Parents can build their own confidence and skills

• Where there is a positive relationship between parents and their child’s nursery there are benefits all round

• Parents get reassurance that their children are receiving a good education.
