20 Tips for Parents From Preschool Teachers

Do ever wonder if your little child has a split personality? At school she might clean up her toys, put on her shoes, and act entirely self-sufficient at potty time. Yet at home, she may whine whenever you ask her to pick up anything, insist you join her in the bathroom whenever she has to go, and demand that you spoon-feed her dinner.


The simple reason this baffling trend: Your child tests her limits with you because she trusts you will love her no matter what. But that doesn't mean you can't borrow a few strategies from the preschool teachers' playbook to get the best from your child.

    We asked educators from around the country for their tips. Listen up and take notes!

    Early childhood education and care (ECEC) in the US includes a wide range of part-day, full-school-day, and full-work-day programs, under educational, social welfare, and commercial auspices, funded and delivered in a variety of ways in both the public and the private sectors, designed sometimes with an emphasis on the “care” component of ECEC and at other times with stress on “education” or with equal attention to both. Although ECEC scholars and advocates are increasingly convinced of the need to integrate all these program types, categorical funding coupled with diverse societal values continue to support the differences. The result is a fragmented ECEC system, of wide-ranging quality and with skewed access, but with some movement in recent years toward the integration of early childhood education and care.

    Benefits of an Educational Consultant

    When a student has a hard time with a math function or a written passage in English, they can seek out extra help from their professors or tutors. So, if parents are having similar problems when trying to sort through the sometimes dizzying number of educational decisions for their child, they might want someone in their corner as well.

    An educational consultant is an independent expert in learning that works with schools, families, and students to find the best strategy in attaining an educational or academic goal. Much like a guidance counsellor helps students sift through their options for post-secondary programs and future careers, an educational consultant assists families in deciding what their values are and what's important for them in an educational experience, and presents them with options that they believe are the best fit.

    5 TIPS TO START THE PRESCHOOL PROCESS

    Preschool (or prekindergarten) is a broad term used to describe curriculum-based early childhood education. Research shows that quality preschool education produces gains in a child’s learning and development, particularly for economically disadvantaged children. But in the U.S., the amount and type of preschool children attend varies widely — some kids attend one year of partial-day preschool before entering kindergarten; others are in full-day, school-like settings beginning at age 2; some children don’t attend preschool at all.

    On top of the choice of whether or not to attend preschool, at what age and for how long, parents also have different educational philosophies to consider — like Montessori, play-based programs, and Waldorf. For parents, the process of determining what is best for your toddler when it comes to early childhood education can be daunting. To get you started, Laura Gradman, a licensed professional counselor, education consultant, and owner of the Chicago Preschool Pro, has provided tips to help you navigate these choices.

    15 QUICK TIPS TO GET HIRED FAST

    You Can Save Time Job Searching by Using Advanced Search Options on Job Boards: All the major job boards, such as Indeed.com, SimplyHired.com, CareerBuilder, and Monster, have an “Advanced Search” option where you can search by keyword, location, a radius of a location, job title, company, type of job, date posted and other options. Here’s a list of the top 10 best job sites, and tips for using Advanced Job Search options.

    Applying for Every Job You Find Isn’t Always a Good Idea: Focus your search on jobs that you’re qualified for. You’ll have a better chance of getting selected for an interview. Sending out random resumes and cover letters is just going to be a waste of time. Before you start job hunting, take the time to decide what type of job you’re seeking.

    6 Important School Tips for Parents From a Principal

    For teachers, parents can be your worst enemy or your best friend. Over the course of the last decade, I have worked with a handful of the most difficult parents, as well as many of the best parents. I believe that the majority of parents do a terrific job and genuinely try their best. The truth is that being a parent is not easy.

As a principal, I would like to offer a few school tips for parents that I believe every educator would want them to know, and that will also benefit their children.
