Knowing where our students come from is critical to understanding them and why they behave the way they do. As a result, our highly trained teachers value meeting our students’ families and discussing specific topics that can help improve their child’s behavior at home and school.
According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children, “partnering with families by inviting them to visit the classroom and participate in activities with their child” is a culturally positive responsive practice. Visiting them at home can also be an opportunity to talk about the child’s interests, learn about the family’s culture and values, as well as families sharing information about their child’s temperament, play partners, and other factors.
Using information about the student and their family, teachers can promote a child’s social and emotional adjustment to early childhood education. This can help to strengthen the bond between the childcare center and the family.
Wonderful Virginia Academy places a high value on our students’ overall learning and development. Our center on child development in Virginia recognizes that children with challenging behavior are frequently rejected by their peers and receive less positive feedback from teachers than their peers. We want to prevent this from becoming the norm by assisting each of our students in becoming better all around.
As a provider of one of the best childcare in Woodbridge, Virginia, we ensure that our teachers can establish long-term relationships and nurturing classrooms in which all children are valued and have opportunities to grow and develop.
