Take a Closer Look

Support learning at home

Spark an early interest in exploring literacy, math, science, social studies and creativity in the home. The activities support cognitive and social development, creativity, and letter and number identification.

Create a culture of learning and engage families as learning partners

Establishing routines early with families and their children supports transition into school and develops the foundational practices that encourage continued family engagement throughout the school years. These routines and practices support a culture of learning at your school.

Develop communication between home and school

Help families to develop communication practices between the home and school to support the education of their child.

Make it your own

Include the school name and specific information that will further aid communication between home and school.
