  1. 1. Activities that Involve Parents/Families Reported by: MIGANO, Jan Christine VILLAFLOR, Jane IV-4 BECEd
  2. 2. School Activities
  3. 3. Adult Education Classes To provide the community with opportunity to learn about a range of subjects.
  4. 4. Getting to Know You Night Hold a Getting to Know You Night. Parents, staff and children spend an informal evening getting to know each other. Hold it somewhere other than the program building—a barbecue in the park, a potluck supper, or a sporting event.

  12. 12. Educational Activities
  13. 13. Read together every day. Read to your child every day. Make this a warm and loving time when the two of you can cuddle close together. Bedtime is an especially great time for reading together.
  14. 14. Participation in classroom and center activities Those who are involved must have guidance, direction, and training. Involving parents and others as paid guides is an excellent way also to provide employment and training.
  15. 15. Involvement of families on writing and individualized educational programs (IEPs) Those who are involved must have guidance, direction, and training. Involving parents and others as paid guides is an excellent way also to provide employment and training.
