How to lead a Boogie Mites Parent Education Transition Workshop

Parent Education

Are you already a registered Nursery setting or Childminder using the Boogie Mites School Ready Programme? Would you like to see the full impact music can have on development at this stage?

Now you can take your music provision to the next step; maximising the benefits by encouraging parent involvement.

It is universally recognised that parent involvement has a huge impact on the brain’s development in early years. Parent support at home, such as joint activities, drawing their attention to sounds and numbers, chatting and interacting with their child, have all been linked to attainment. Where the parent involvement is not good this is a significant factor that can explain the attainment gap.

Parent involvement is an important part of any child-care experience and parent evenings, Father’s Day visits and tips for home-learning are made readily available by most settings. But “in a recent study in England, 72% of parents said that they wanted more involvement” and here at Boogie Mites, we hear you!
