While the pandemic greatly changed school and playtime routines, it’s no surprise that children have been incredibly resilient. However, according to a Harvard study, 61% of parents still feel the pandemic negatively impacted their child’s social-emotional development.

As the next school year begins, it’s imperative that parents have an early childhood education partner to help their children overcome isolation and healthily interact with others, label emotions and develop self-help skills. Learning programs that balance academic, mental, physical and social-emotional growth can help children regain normalcy, reengage with their peers and teachers and have fun while navigating teachable moments.

Research shows that students with involved parents are more likely to have higher grades and test scores, have better social skills, show improved behavior and adapt well in school regardless of their income or background.

Dennis R. Maple, Chairman and CEO, and Dr. Lauren Starnes, Chief Academic Officer, both of Goddard Systems, LLC, shared how parents can notice stress in their children and help them reacclimate and grow, how to be an active participant in your child’s learning, the importance of social-emotional learning in education programs and how teachers and parents can partner to best meet a child’s needs.
