The first five years of your child’s life set the foundation for, and influence, future success in school and life. Because parents are the child’s first and most important teachers, it is vital that parents and educators work together. Our school and community need to understand the areas and stages of human development and how the interactions of each family affect this development. We, as educators, share the responsibility with the community for nurturing those forces which develop and strengthen family life.
