Building positive relationships between teachers, children, parents, and the community
- Learning and development occur through the constant exchange between teachers, children, parents and their environment.
- Children’s learning and interaction occurs in the context of the bigger picture- their family, their community, and past experiences.
- Each child has a unique background and unique needs and contributions, communication between teachers and parents is crucial for the child’s optimal development.
- Parents are encouraged to learn about their child’s activities and interests in the school setting just as teachers learn about a child’s interests at home.
