There are many reasons why transitioning back to school, for parents particularly, is hard at the moment. While parents know that going back to, or indeed starting, school can be a stressful time anyway, with the extra precautions in place and new potential concerns that could arise with regards to COVID, it can be even more disconcerting.
However, there are solutions on hand, and procedures in place that can make the transition back to school easier for parents.
When it comes to the actual schooling environment, it’s critical that whatever level, but especially when it comes to early years education, the communication between parent and teacher is smooth, easy and intuitive. This is why pre school management software can be so valuable at a time like this.
Streamlined Communication Between Parent & Teacher
It’s more important than ever for parents to understand how their child’s school environment is dealing with the transition back to physical classes after an extended period of remote learning.
For early years education institutions, it’s also more critical now to be able to provide effective and streamlined communication with parents. Having pre school management software in place provides an intuitive hub where parents and teachers can communicate effectively, and quickly.
The benefit of such software is that teachers are able to provide information about how the school is complying with the social distancing requirements, and can share any necessary information with parents in an instant messaging channel.
Having a secure hub where parents are able to easily get in touch with their child’s teachers just means that any anxieties that parents of children in early learning education can be assuaged much quicker and easier than before.
For example, having pre school management software in place streamlines things like:
- Sharing and signing permission forms
- Sharing policy and regulation updates
- Sharing insights as to the child’s achievements and performance
The best way to make the transition back to school easier for parents, is ensuring that school and parent communication is organised, streamlined and intuitive.
This just assuages any of those anxieties that may arise during those first few weeks of school, and also ensures that going forward there is a strong relationship between the parent and education provider.
