The goal of this handbook has to been to develop processes for you to create an environment where your child feels safe, secure and happy in a new kindergarten environment. However, it is also important to consider not only how these actions benefit your child but also your entire family unit.
Families who have open communication with each other, educators and their support systems will be better equipped to thrive in the face of adversity and show the true meaning of prosilience. As adults we must work towards modelling positive behaviours and interactions to ensure that your child is best able to show these desired behaviours themselves.
There will undoubtedly be times during this process that your values, preconceptions and knowledge is challenged but it is important to recognise that it is not only your child who is going through a big life change and learning process. As adults we must work towards modelling positive behaviours and interactions to ensure that your child is best able to show these desired behaviours themselves.
No part of your child’s learning and development is an isolated process and providing your child with a voice in this process is the best way to ensure that your child is best able to thrive not only in the kindergarten environment but also in the future. The tools you have gained in this book will set your child and your family unit on the path towards not only prosilience and open communication but also on the path towards lifelong learning. You are heading into an exciting time in your family’s story and one that will not doubt shape how your child’s view of the world is shaped and moulded!
Early intervention in an intercultural settling in period helps to prevent potential risk factors. Educators, families and institutions aim to focus on building essential skills, starting in early education. A well-prepared team of educators and well-informed families help to create the best possible scenario for settling in a child in a multi-lingual setting.
It is paramount that the safety, well-being and best interests of a child are both the educators and parent’s top priority. Children need healthy environments in which to grow and develop, play and learn. Their environments are complex and changing as discussed with many different case studies provided.
