Bringing Families on Board
IPC research has shown that up to 40% of learning happens at home. After launching the IPC Family Curriculum, IPC families have an early opportunity to maximize this potential.
At the IPC, the involvement of the family is greatly encouraged and seen as a key component to the development of a child. It is also important to note that the development and the education of a child often reach beyond the traditional parent/ child relationship.
Grandparents, older siblings, relatives and prominent members of the community also play important roles.
The IPC also encourages the participation of all those involved in the education of children outside of school children.
A simple, yet enjoyable task, such as counting the number of red cars on the commute to or from school, will allow a child to work on a number of areas, including number sense, visual discrimination and counting. With research showing that almost half of all learning taking place at home, the role of the family can never be underestimated.
