CSP Spotlight: Parents, are you ready to go back to school?

It is soon time to head back to school. In the whirl of excitement, stores offer back to school sales for clothes and supplies offered in preparation for that first day of school. In the midst of getting children ready for school, parents must also look at their role to help make this a great year. Leading experts all agree that the the home environment is the greatest predictor of a child’s success in school.  So, parents, how do you rate?

 

Do you…

  • Demonstrate a love and enthusiasm for learning?
  • Demonstrate support for teachers and school leaders?
  • Attend school functions as often as possible?
  • Read to your child or encourage independent reading on a daily basis?
  • Provide both support and structure for home learning activities?
  • Set developmentally age appropriate expectations for your child’s achievement and behavior?
  • Encourage exploration and problem solving skills?
  • Participate in parent councils?
  • Limit exposure to media?
  • Encourage your child to get physical activity?
  • Promote structure, routine and a sense of responsibility in the family?

Community Service Programs of West Alabama (CSP), Inc.’s Head Start/Early Head Start and Child Care Partnership programs engage families and encourage healthy lifestyle choices.    Head Start’s philosophy holds that parents are primary educators and through program participation, parents are empowered to have a lasting impact on the lives of their children.
