Can my child adjust to preschool? Will my child be able to mingle, befriend and interact? Will the teachers understand with my child? That’s part of the question when we enroll the little one in preschool. Building good and open communication with preschoolers can reduce our worry as a parent.
Know the Master and School Environment
Consider several factors in choosing a preschool to be about safety and comfort, cleanliness, general curricula used, cost scale, and preschool location. You can before deciding to sign up to make an appointment with the teacher, that you will visit the class. Notice and see how teachers interact with children. Afterwards can ask questions.
While in class, notice how teachers teach and how children respond to their directions. If children look happy and interact well with the teacher, chances are good that the teacher’s teaching style will be suitable for your child as well.
Also ask the teacher about the children’s habits in general, such as, “If my child cries in class, how do you handle it” or “How do you handle a child who beats another child?” . It should also be asked how the teacher handles discipline, anger, teaches toilets, bites his friends, or worries other preschoolers.
From some questions and answers from a teacher can help you evaluate how and how quickly deal with problems in the everyday classroom. You can also learn a lot when asking questions to the teacher, responsive or seem defensive. If the teacher seems defensive, uncomfortable, or uninterested in answering your questions, the presupposition of communication problems in preschool are not communicative and certainly not appropriate for your child.
Parent and Teacher Meetings
These meetings typically include play styles and social development, development and behavior of children. Meetings between parents and teachers make time for listening and communicating openly. Most of the time, a preschool teacher will emphasize the craft and discipline of the child. But parent and teacher meetings also provide an opportunity to show other areas that may be done by their students.
If the teacher is worried about your child, try not to become defensive, as it may make the teacher hesitate to discuss the matter with you for fear of misunderstanding. Try to ask the teacher directly, with confidence that every problem there must be a way out.
Meeting with teachers on a regular basis will help you understand your child’s progress, find the best solution for your child’s problems and show your interest and cooperation with the school.
Discusses and looks for the best solution to a child’s problem
When problems arise like a child biting or fighting with a friend, the best solution is for parents and teachers to sit together and discuss common issues. If your child has serious behavior problems, talk to your doctor or psychologist.
The preschoolers’ preoccupation often changes, even often bored. They are just beginning to learn to interact with other children their age. Also, various factors including whether they are sick, hungry, or tired can affect the daily reactions in school. But if your child continues to complain, behave differently than usual, immediately contact the teacher and talk about it.
If you are worried about teachers with teaching styles or teacher performance, talk to them first. If not resolved, talk to the teacher supervisor next. Try to solve the problem with it to find a solution. If needed, ask for another teacher. So that any problems arise, can be solved by deliberation between parents and teachers in preschool.
