Standard #2
Standard #2 is about building family and community relations.
As a teacher I want the parents of my students to know that I am there
for them as a teacher to work together to help their child grow,
develop and learn. You need to include the family in all aspects of
teaching. If you are not working together it is harder for the child. I
need to be available to speak with the parents and families and help
when needed. I love to see families involved in the learning process.
Parents can be a great example to their children and to other children.

To demonstrate my competency of the standard, I chose to


include my Family Diversity Policy that I wrote in my CHD 270:
Administration of Childcare Programs class. The policy states my
beliefs about children and their families. It states that all children and
families are welcome no matter what their race, religion and culture
are. This Policy informs the parents and families of the multiple ways
that I will work together with each family to help with the growth and
development of his/her individual child.

Working with the family and building relationships is very

important. I need the support of the families and families need the
support of all the teachers and the school. It is a two way street.
Everyone needs each other to help the children learn, grow, and
develop to their highest potential. We as teachers and as family
members are here to help them. Teachers can include the families in
learning new things and new cultures. I think that learning about
others is so important to children. The more we learn hopefully the
less we judge, and the better we can support the children in their
learning and growth.

Family Diversity Policy
Here is an example of a family diversity policy. I got the
examples from the NAEYC website.

Family participation is encouraged in the decision making


of their childrens education

Encourage families to act as advocates for their children


and for the early childhood program by taking part actively in
decision opportunities

Help facilitate a constant two-way communication through


many forms using the language preferred by the family.
Communication should be both family and school initiated and
should be done in a timely manner.

Teachers should exchange knowledge with families. Family


members can share their unique knowledge and skills
participating in events and activities and by volunteering at the

school

Teachers should seek out information about each childs


family, community, and use this information in the curriculum
and during instruction

Teachers should encourage learning activities at come that


help the child enhance the learning at school

Encourage families efforts to help enhance the learning at


home

Continually encourage families by finding out ways to


improve and help include them in the learning process
