Developing relationships with children and their families
In this week’s episode, we discuss the importance of parent-teacher collaboration in early childhood education. In our conversation with Lynn Arner, we talk about the move towards including “family engagement” as a new measurement of child care quality in California. We also delve into her decision to include parents in her coaching work as she believes that parents are a child’s first teacher and the foundation of their learning. Lynn also gives us some perspective into how the field has evolved over the years and shares some tips for teachers who are trying to connect with parents in a “hyperconnected” society.
