By treating our parents as their child's first teacher and expert on their child, we involve them in the process of learning about their child and setting goals for that year's learning as well as learning well into the future. Parents are invited to come in to talk with all of their child's classroom teachers before the school year even begins. This way, they can share some of their home life with us - favorite toys and activities, books their children are interested in, songs their children love, and some of their family culture - to be incorporated in our classroom culture and in the building of that year's curriculum and environment.
