Nanay-Teacher Parenting Camo trains parents to be better educators

Do you want your child to perform better at school?


Give your child the appropriate nudge by joining Nanay-Teacher Training Camp, which is intended for parents sending their children to public schools in Valenzuela City.


The four-hour seminar aims to guide and teach parents on how to reinforce student’s education by continuing their learning right in the comforts of their home.


Amelia Flores, principal of Caruhatan East Elementary School, welcomed the conduct of the event, as she noted parent’s obligation in guiding and nurturing the education of their kids.


To assure student’s academic growth, Flores said parents and teachers should share the same vision in helping students learn things even if they are outside school.


“Dapat magkaisa ‘yung guro at magulang para malaman ng magulang kung ano ang tamang pagtuturo sa bata dahil ang titser pwedeng mabago sa mga susunod na taon ‘yan pero ‘yung mga magulang hindi—panghabang-buhay na ‘yan,” Flores said.


“Kaya bilang magulang dapat itatak natin sa ating isip na dapat tutok din tayo sa pag-aaral ng ating mga anak dahil mula sa pagkabata hanggang sa pagtanda nila kayo ang masisilbing patnubay,” the principal added.


The training seminar is an initiative of Valenzuela City Congressman Sherwin “Win” Gatchalian in coordination with the Valenzuela City government and education advocate group, Synergeia Foundation, Inc.


Under the program, the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) members who joined the first Nanay-Teacher Training in Cavite last September 3 are tasked to train other members in their respective schools.


The training session focused on how to properly teach and discipline their children through dialogues and workshops, in which parents can receive lectures, materials, and parenting modules.


The module contains practical tips on different learning approach and child behavior to help the parents or guardians sustain what they have learned in the training seminar.


So far, 26 out of 39 public elementary schools in Valenzuela City have agreed to organize Nanay-Teacher Training Seminar in their respective campuses over the next two weeks.


The following schools are scheduled to conduct Nanay-Teacher Training Camp from September 24 to 30:
