Now that your child is back in the swing of things at school, it’s important to let your child’s teacher know you want to partner with them and share the responsibility for your child’s academic growth.

Here are some tips to keep in mind for a successful school year:Tips for Having a Good Relationship with Your Child's Teacher

Stay in touch

Keep your child’s teacher informed of any concerns or issues with your child.  A teacher that is informed of any concerns or outside issues with your child is best able to provide appropriate care and guidance.  If you do not have time to speak with your child’s teacher at the center, the daily journal option that the center offers is an effective way to keep the lines of communication open.

Help out

If you are able to, let the teacher know you are there to help and volunteer to assist with school trips or functions that might need additional adult supervision. According to Kids Health, by interacting with teachers and other parents on a regular basis, you’ll gain a firsthand understanding of your child’s daily activities. You’ll also be able to tap into trends and fads of school life that can help you communicate with your kids as they grow and change.

Team up

Keep in mind that you and your child’s teacher have the same goals. You are both working to ensure your child makes progress and receives the best education experience. So, it’s important to sit down together every now and then to figure out what you can do at home to reinforce what your child’s teacher is doing in the classroom. This will allow your child to continue learning long after the school day ends!

Always remember that your child’s teacher loves your child. Say thank you often or give a small token of appreciation, because it will mean the world to a teacher!
