Parent Communication is Key Web Meeting Session
With new classroom guidelines and virtual landscapes, parent communication is more important than ever. In this webinar, we will examine different types of parent communication for the early childhood classroom, whether virtual or in-person. We will identify our goals for family collaboration and what we can do to successfully meet those goals. We will also touch on parents as partners, family engagement, and Jewish holidays/celebrations.
Meeting Time: 10/29 at 3:00pm-4:30pm EDT!
