Harmony's home visit program is as old as the school system itself. Since 2000, more than 20,000+ home visits were conducted and more than 2000 teachers involved in the program. Teachers are making home visits in order to better meet the needs of the child and family. In promoting a partnership between parents and teachers, home visits provide the means for effective team problem solving, observing children in their home environment, and encouraging parent involvement.
Home visit also creates a personal bond between the students, parents, and teachers to ensure optimum success. In addition, it provides a sense of security for the parents to know that their children are in good and caring hands, and allows the parent to give feedback on their student’s academic experience.
Sincerely yours in education,
