Parent Involvement

Research shows parent involvement is the most important factor in determining a child’s success in school. At MECP we believe that you are your child’s best teacher. We look forward to working together with you to help ensure your child enters kindergarten ready to learn.

How can parents be involved?

  • Try the ideas and suggestions recommended by your child’s providers.
  • Read to your child every day.
  • Talk to your child often. Describe, comment and ask questions.
  • Play with your child.
