Parents only want the best for their children. They probably spend hours researching local preschools so that their child will be set up for success. When they entrust their children into your care as a preschool teacher, they will most likely have many questions for you about what their children are doing, what they are learning, and how they are faring. O2B Kid is an early education center with many locations throughout Florida. We specialize in child-directed play along with teacher-directed lessons, outdoor enrichment, and more to ensure our students’ success in the world. Below, we’ll offer up some tips on how to make communication with parents clear. Contact our preschool in Florida to learn more today! TIPS TO MAKE COMMUNICATION CLEAR WITH PARENTS Set a Communication Policy While some parents communicate a lot, other parents will be the opposite and communicate very little. As the teacher, you will set the standard for communication with the parents. You’ll want to set your preferred method of communication as well as expected response times. After all, no one wants a phone call from an upset parent at 8 pm. Set this from the get-go so that you and the parents are on the same page. Weekly Reports Problems with parent communication usually arise from the lack of it. While you don’t want to spend an exorbitant amount of time on communication, you want to ensure your parents have the information they need regarding what is happening in your classroom. Weekly reports of subjects taught, lessons learned, extracurriculars, guest speakers, field trips, and individual reports of children themselves usually work well for parents.

However, it’s important to remember that for many parents, preschool is their first experience with school as a parent, just as it’s their child’s first experience with school. Help set your boundaries and prepare parents for a successful school year by being crystal clear with them regarding your expectations and requirements.
