PARENTS should regularly visit schools and discuss the academic progress of their children, the Teddy Bears Kindergarten headteacher has said.

Lillian Webare said: “Our parents are too busy to make a follow-up on their children’s academic work. Their role only stops at dropping and picking children from school.”

This was at the school’s open day recently. The day’s activities are held annually, to encourage interaction between parents, teachers and pupils. The day is also meant to enable parents to discuss ways of improving academic standards at the school.

Deputy headteacher advised parents to always read with the children, to instill in them a reading culture.

“Pre-primary is a stage that forms a strong foundation for primary education, so it calls for both the teacher and parents’ participation if learning is to take place,” she said.

She said one-on-one discussions carried out during the school open day enlighten parents on what kind of learning materials to buy for their children, depending on their different class levels and areas of weakness.

Besides, Kanzini noted that attending the event and others like it boosts the children’s self-esteem and encourages them to work hard.
