Supporting the Home-School Connection

Just as relationships between teachers and children are critical, so are those between teachers and families. We know families are the best experts about their child’s learning, at home and at school.

STREAMin3 helps programs and teachers work together with families by promoting regular communication, shared resources, and reciprocal, warm, and respectful interactions that are sensitive to each family’s needs, background, and culture. We know children learn best when teachers get to know families and use that knowledge to inform their use of the curriculum and their interactions with children.
