PARENT’S ROLE

Docere4Parents began as a result of working in several school districts in Hamilton and Butler County, I began noticing students in fourth and fifth grade struggling with reading fluency, phonemic awareness, critical thinking skills, comprehension, and inadequate problem solving strategies for math. Working as a math and reading tutor furthered my interest in early learning. As time went on I began to develop additional strategies that I soon implemented with my own children. Soon after, Docere4Parents was born. Initially, I assisted daycare staff at Gentle Lambs Daycare and then expanded into schools. The mission was to provide parents and caregivers with fundamental academic coaching in reading and math to improve achievement. While we have a long way to go in full achievement of this mission we are excited to grow our efforts in Southern Ohio to meet the needs of families.


OUR MISSION

To equip parents and caregivers with the fundamental learning methods in reading for children entering preschool through second grade so they may reinforce, advocate, and understand their educational development to prepare them for a STEAM career.

STATS



Two-thirds of teachers surveyed (Public Agenda, 2003) believed that their students would perform better in school if their parents were more involved in their child’s education, while 72% of parents say children of uninvolved parents sometimes “fall through the cracks” in schools.                              Johnson & Duffett, 2003


SEDL ( a group that synthesizes research from 51 studies over the preceding decade to reach conclusions about the effect of parent involvement on student learning) found that students with involved parents, no matter their income or background, are more likely to:

  • Earn higher grades and test scores, and enroll in higher-level programs
  • Be promoted, pass their classes and earn credits
  • Attend school regularly
  • Have better social skills, show improved behavior and adapt well to school
  • Graduate and go on to post-secondary education


Experts say about 5% of the nation's children learn to read with ease, almost intuitively. An additional 20% to 30% learn to read with relative ease once they begin some kind of formal instruction. However, the bulk of children (about 60%) have difficulty.
