Parent Education Program


A child’s development depends not only on the school and education that he/she receives but also the parents who have a major impact on effective mentoring. Parenting is a natural process but with some training and awareness on early childhood education this process can have a better effect on the child.
One of the major issues the nation is facing today is parent literacy. If the parent is illiterate then the contribution towards the future of the child is affected. In some cases, they are not aware of the need for social and emotional development. Some do not focus adequately on an overall language development (only reading and writing skills seem important to them).
This gap in literate and illiterate family background can be bridged with the help of Parent Education program. It entails activities on promotion of health, hygiene and food habits among kids; social and emotional development, responsible parenting practices, teaching basic concepts in math through a fun learning techniques like picture recognition, subtraction and addition through objects, etc.

A typical Parent Education Program focuses on developing both skills and knowledge. It is a combination of sessions by supervisors, workshops and meetings with parents. A thorough assessment of the implementation and impact of the program is conducted on a periodical basis.
