What Parents Can Ask and Do to Help Children Thrive at School

As a parent or caregiver, you have a key role in your child’s education—you can help bridge your child’s transition from home to school, and give him or her the best chance at success in learning and in life. While your child’s education begins at home, this tool provides you with a set of questions to ask, and important issues to consider when approaching your child’s teachers, principals and counselors about his or her development. As a parent or caregiver, it can be hard to know how to support your child’s learning, but asking your child’s educators the right questions is a good place to start.
