Enhancing the Learning Environment: 3 Ways to Help Children Succeed Academically

Updated on January 1, 2018

Instilling good learning habits and motivating children to constantly continue learning is quite important to most parents. This is the primary motivation behind why many parents choose to register their children to a private elementary school. They believe that private schools are able to offer better environments.

Although most private schools are able to offer more amenities and services that help children succeed academically, parents should still monitor their children’s learning progress. Here are 3 things that parents can do to help their children succeed academically.

Keep Track of Progress and Behavior with Parent-Teacher Conferences

Stay up-to-date with each child’s progress in school by going to parent-teacher conferences. These conferences allow parents to get a good idea of how their children are acting in class, and whether they are running into any difficulties in certain subjects or topics. Parents should let teachers know that they would like to engage with each child’s learning and to contact them at any time. In fact, most teachers would recommend that the parents leave a home number or a personal email where they can be reached easily.

Those who are unable to make the parent-teacher conferences should schedule the conferences at a later time. Conferences can be done through email or even video chats.

Apply for Special Services and Amenities if It’s Needed

Parents who notice that their children are struggling academically or have a learning disorder should contact the private school to apply for special services and amenities. This might include private tutoring at the end of school and other accommodations. The goal is to provide the tools and resources needed to help children reach their academic goals.

Spend Time Every Night Helping Them with Their Homework

Studies have shown that parents who are able to put effort into helping their children with their homework tend to have children who perform better academically. Every night, allot some time to make sure that each child gets his or her homework done. Be available for them to ask any questions or to get clarification on other topics.

Those who find it difficult to help their children with homework or school projects should get homework help elsewhere. They should consider enrolling their children in tutoring programs, after school programs and more. Most of the time, many of these programs are already offered at the private elementary school.

Conclusion

Put an effort into monitoring each child’s progress at school. Be more in tune with how they’re doing and what their troubles may be. By being more involved, parents can help motivate their children to exceed academically. They can also help nurture their child’s hobbies and interests.
