Parent Time……What is it?
Parent Time is training for parents regarding how to be the primary teacher for their children and full partners in the education of their children (NCFL, 2009) . Parent Time serves as the hub of communication for adult-to-adult information sharing in family engagement programs. During Parent Time, program staff work with adults to set high expectations, focus on their children's progress, and extend learning in the home and community. Parent Time is intended to clarify the role of parents, foster collaborative time to reach family goals, and increase parents' effective engagement in their children's development.
