Keys To Establishing A Healthy Parent-Teacher Relationship

When it comes to your child’s learning and development, teachers usually shoulder the responsibility as they are at the heart of your child’s educational experience.

While teachers are accountable for students at school, parents are the #1 influence for your child on what they do and say.

You may be surprised to learn that a healthy parent-teacher relationship is crucial for your child’s social competencies, emotional well-being and academic performance.

When parents and teachers collaborate well as partners, your child can do better in school and at home. You can remain on top of your child’s growth and development at school so you can better assist them at home!

Try the following tips for creating a great relationship with your child’s teacher!

Fostering Communication

While our teachers at Genesis Childcare 1989 are highly trained professionals, no one knows your child better than you do.

Let our passionate and dedicated teachers know of your child's strengths and challenges, likes and dislikes, and establish clear objectives on what you hope he or she accomplishes at school!

Regular, two-way communication is crucial to remain well-informed about what is happening at school and to let teachers understand your child at a deeper level.

At our Tampines childcare, we encourage parents to share their expertise with us! Scheduled meetings between parents and teachers are held at least twice a year to provide opportunities for both you and the teacher to discuss about your child's progress and development. Hence, be sure to attend the meeting!

One tip for a more effective communication is to gather your thoughts in advance. Before attending the meeting, you can draft what you have to say in a bulleted list of notes. By doing so, it helps you prioritise and keep track of your own thought process.

Creating Consistency

Consistency is key to an effective teacher-parent partnership. It involves the experiences you provide at home to aid your child's learning.

You should establish some kind of routine at home to instil healthy and constructive habits in your child.

Well, you can establish a routine of starting potty training with your toddler. You can also encourage healthy habits for eating and physical activity.

When your child has experiences in a positive and predictable environment, his or her brain becomes wired to follow rules, do what is socially expected, handle frustration, and more.

With that, your child will have more energy to learn and explore.

Promoting Collaboration

The best tip for a child's success is to make sure that parents and teachers are working together as allies.

A collaborative parent-teacher partnership focuses on distinctive, positive ways to assist your child, to unleash their fullest potential.

Instead of accusing a teacher when something goes wrong, parents and teachers can approach the matter as a team to plan and problem-solve issues that may arise.

After all, the end goal is the same for both parent and school: nurturing and scaffolding your child to reach their fullest potential.


These practices will go a long way in helping you work efficiently and effectively with our teachers to ensure that your child has all the right fuel for growing, learning and developing.
