An introduction to parent engagement

Video transcript

Parent engagement is where they're really connected with the learning of their child. So that they're in partnership with the child's teachers, learn in the classroom, and then take the learning home. When you have a really positive engagement with families, what you will do is build a partnership.

There's this kind of complex puzzle and we're trying to all work together. That's where you're really starting to get engagement, and your understanding what the teacher is doing and why they're doing it. Through that partnership, together you'll get greater outcomes for the children and young people.
