Here at Kenmore Hills Early Learning, we believe in open communication and strong partnerships between parents and educators. That’s why parent-educator meetings are a cornerstone of our approach! These meetings are an invaluable opportunity to discuss your child’s progress, address any concerns, and work together to create the best possible learning environment.

But sometimes, navigating these meetings can feel a little daunting. Worry not, space explorers! This guide will equip you with the tools to make the most of your next parent-educator meeting:


  • Review any materials provided: Many childcare centres will send parents reports, learning goals, or discussion prompts beforehand. Take some time to review these materials and jot down any questions you might have.
  • Think about your child: What are you curious about? Are there any areas where you’d like to see improvement, or specific strengths you’d like to highlight?
  • Come prepared to discuss: Consider your child’s social development, emotional well-being, academic progress, and any observations you’ve made at home.

During the Meeting:

  • Open communication is key! Don’t hesitate to share your observations and concerns.
  • Actively listen: Educators have valuable insights into your child’s development.
  • Work together: Brainstorm strategies and set goals for continued growth at home and in the childcare centre.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions! The more informed you are, the better equipped you’ll be to support your child.

Here are some discussion prompts to get you started:

  • Strengths and Interests: What are my child’s strengths and areas they’re excelling in? What are their interests, and how can we nurture them further?
  • Social and Emotional Development: How is my child interacting with their peers? Are they expressing their emotions healthily?
  • Learning and Development: What are my child’s current learning goals? How can I support these goals at home?
  • Challenges and Concerns: Are there any areas where my child might need extra support? How can we work together to address these concerns?
