According to NAEYC, building reciprocal relationships with the parents/families is extremely important, which is 100% true because they are the most important people in their child’s life. Parents/families have helpful information about their child that we do not know. Communicating with them can help us better understand and learn more about their child’s personality, interests, values, experiences, and abilities that we might not have seen or observed in the classroom. Learning more about the child through parents/families will also give us the opportunity to get to know not just the child, but them as well, such as their home, culture, and community environment.

By recognizing parents’ involvement in their child’s early education, we are telling or sending them the message that we care about their child’s learning and well-being, and that their knowledge and insights about their child are being valued.
