The motive of a PTA or a parent’s teachers meet is mostly to register in a preschool program that believes in feedback. The session is a short one which allows teachers to update the progress made by the children and also draw their attention to some concerns. This is an informal forum along with general communications about new inclusions, rules and other events that are scheduled to come up in the next few months. This is also an encouraging sign for parents who are keen to know more about their child’s mental growth after joining a preschool.
Ready formats, syllabus charts, instructions and worksheets with evaluations are another way to have a proper discipline while addressing parents. It is also important to maintain a formal dialogue and reassure parents about several apprehensions that they have. The one common thing about what effaces from parents are simple questions about the child’s adaptive skills and a bit on the education. Certain parents also worry about the child’s meal times or aggressive behavior. Being personal here is not recommended and hence the preschool teachers are well trained to give a professional report on the same.
Scheduling weekends PTA is also advisable. Time slots are the best way which can be communicated so that working parents can afford to make it. It is always best to address to meet both parents together so that the communication is clear. Any misunderstanding or lack of communication must be patched up as the parents must feel justified at the end of the session. The teachers too must be receptive and very cordial in their meetings which ensure ongoing communication.
Parents may also have several communications with respect to change of communication or suggestions to improve a particular subject line. Such suggestions must be diarized so that action can be taken after due connection with the syllabus, senior management and the primary company. This is important as the main advertisement done for the preschool is through parents and care givers. Ensuring trust and confidence must also be the agenda of the PTA meet.
The PTA meet is also a medium to give certificates or merit and participation. All anxieties of parents in connection with competitions must be put to rest so that the child and parent is encouraged and improves themselves. The PTA forum can also be a group address for exchange of ideas with regards to parenting seminars, anxiety about children, new school curriculum and general talks on diet for a child or growth aspects.
