Epstein says there are six types of involvement in parental engagement (Epstein, 2009). The types of involvement are parenting, communicating, volunteering, learning at home, decision-making, and collaborating with the community. Parenting involves encouraging the student to do well, instilling positive beliefs and values in the child. Communication within the school as well as at home can create a powerful relationship between the student and parents. Parents should communicate to manage their child’s academic success.
Families, along with their children, are the program” (Menza-Gonzalez, 2009). Educators who understand child development in perspective to family and community rely on competency to organize an early childhood program which incorporates effective developmentally approved practices which incorporate family and community into the “whole child” approach. “School readiness is, of course, a concern for everybody, but professionals with a child development back-ground often come at it from a different angle than some other professionals and families by recognizing that social-emotional development is vitally tied to cognitive development” (Menza-Gonzalez, 2009). Socially, a child learns to relate to family, peers, teachers and other members of the community through a range of human emotions, interactions, and transitions over the years of development. Emotionally, children
This led to parents having more power as consumers. Miriam Davies describes this parental choice agenda as ‘parentocracy’ because power has been moved away from the producers (teachers/school) to the consumers (parents). She claimed that this encourages diversity among schools, gives parents more choice and drives up standards. Parents were now able to influence the education of their children. Not only were league tables published, but formula funding was introduced.

The conclusion of the study was that early Montessori education had a long-term impact on later public school performance”(Cavegn). By way of example, parents who may be questioning the transition between a Montessori preschool to a traditional public school can view these results, and feel confident that the Montessori preschool program can potentially be the most effective and influential option for a preschool child’s higher education. Skills that are inevitably learned through Montessori, such as leadership, independence, socialization, respect, etc. further develop students’ education, and allow them to surpass other students who lack a Montessori education, in terms of test scores and grade point
1.1 Explain why effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults. Why effective communication is important Effective communication is important because it helps to improve the understanding between pupils and their adults. It also helps the staff at schools to communicate their feelings about students and plan future work. Sometimes if the communication is not very good between the adults in a classroom, it can affect the pupils. Children can notice the bad communication and that would not set a good example for growing, young children.
L. Rowton My Early Childhood Education Autobiography I definitely agree that the degree of exposure that a child has to education while growing up has a huge impact on views one has later in life regarding early childhood education. For example, people such as parents, older siblings, teachers, babysitters, daycare providers, etc. can all provide different learning experiences for the child. Being around other children can also provide extremely valuable experiences for a child, as far as learning goes, and influencing social behavior as well. A child who does not have positive experiences with their early childhood education may suffer both academically and socially later on in life, lacking the proper groundwork toward a good, solid education, I believe it it extremely important to instill a positive outlook in a child regarding education and learning in general.
Home School verse Public Education Throughout this essay, I will explore the structural differences, socialization qualities and standardize testing measures between students that are home schooled verse those engaged in the public education system. In my opinion, students benefit more from the socialization and standardize testing requirements associated with a public school education. Although some of the research associated with this topic dictates that home schooled children are capable of performing at a higher level, we all could agree that the social qualities and opportunities public education provide help to develop personalities and character with students of all ages. The first aspect I want to explore concerns the amount of assignments and testing requirements associated with these two models. In the home school spectrum, there is no definitive answer to this question.
Assess the strengths and limitations of questionnaires for the study and parental attitudes to education. The attitudes of parents towards the education of their children can have a strong effect on the educational experience of a student. The attitudes shown by parents can be recorded by using a number of methods, these include questionnaires/ surveys. Questionnaires can be used to uncover the variety of the parents' opinions regarding their child's education. They can be easily distributed to parents, via the school and students, on a macro (large) scale; this can be seen as one of the many strengths of using questionnaires they are easily distributed.
