Wednesday, May 16th, 2018 we’ll be inviting parents at both ACA1 and ACA2 to join us in the classroom for breakfast with the kids from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m.
A PPC, or Parent Participation Preschool, is type of quality child care center that encourages parental involvement because of the link it has to early childhood development. There have been numerous studies that demonstrate having a parent actively involved a school-aged child’s activities can have an impact on several factors of that child’s development including academic achievement We have observed the same holds true for preschool-aged children and factors such as their preliteracy skills.
Many specialists have asserted that presence is key to this involvement. Children take notice when something seems important to their parent(s) and seem to then also take an interest in the said activity. At a subconscious level, you can help motivate your child to care for their school experience and activities by being present whenever the opportunity presents itself. So join us May 16th at 8 am for the most important meal of the day and help your child get even more excited about their preschool.
