Parent-Teacher Communication Sheet for Preschoolers

Updated on September 27, 2012

When a child starts school for the first time, it can be scary for not only the child, but mom and dad too. Having good communication with the child's teacher is crucial. It not only helps ease everyone's anxiety, but can help with potty-training efforts, uncovering developmental disabilities, understanding social and emotional concerns, and discovering skills and talents. For a child with developmental delays or learning disabilities, parent-teacher communication is even more essential, since it is important to coordinate therapy efforts, skill development and behavior shaping.

Some preschool teachers send home a daily progress report, but others do not. When my son started preschool, I created my own. You can use this form below or create your own using this one as an example. To print the form below, right click on the sheet, and select Print Image. Select Scale to Page (or an equivalent option) from your printer settings or preferences.

To print this form, right click on it and select Print.  In your printer settings or preferences, select the scale to paper size setting.

There are many ways to modify this form and create your own custom communication sheet in Microsoft Word, Excel, Power Point or Publisher. This allows you to modify the form at any time and print new copies. Another quick and easy method to hand print the items you wish to track on sheet of computer paper and make photo copies of it. It doesn't need to be fancy. It just needs to be easy to read and fill out. A good form has a clear layout and does not take the care-giver or teacher much time to complete.

      I only have about 20 minutes to write in all their books. I have 8 preschoolers with special needs and this is GREAT. Printing it now!!!

      This would also be great for daycare, babysitters and even kidergarten with perhaps a few changes. Very useful!

      Thank you for this, its a wonderful idea. I bought a hard cover book that we (teachers and I) use back and fourth for communication. I keep it in my sons school bag so we can always communicate together daily. This works just as well. :-)
