Parent empowerment through home-based early education programs

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Because of the high specialization of education, including pre-school education,
in former state Socialist countries, many parents felt ill equipped to prepare
their children for school. This led to many parents not engaging in activities
that prepared children for school. Our paper presents preliminary results from
focus group discussions with parents concerning their participation in the
Getting Ready for School program implemented in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kazakhstan,
and Tajikistan. This program was initiated by the Open SocietyFoundations
Network Early Childhood Programin order to promote parental empowerment through
building new skills in supporting the development of pre-literacy and numeracy
in their children as well as establishing a relationship with the primary school
teacher. Data was collected under the supervision of the American Institutes
for Research. Participation in the program increased parental confidence in
approaching teachers, parent’s learning, and parent’s attention children’s early
learning.
