Early Years Parent Workshops to be offered by Regents International School Pattaya


January is always a busy month at Regents and it’s about to get even busier in Early Years (Kindergarten) as a new initiative to get parents involved in their children’s schooling gets underway.

Coordinated by head of Early Years and Assistant Principal Karyn Walton, the workshop aims to give parents an understanding of what the Early Years curriculum entails in a British school and how it differs from the Primary and Secondary curriculums.

“Three-way communication between school, parent and child is critical at a young age. By creating a forum to discuss important issues we can exchange information much easier than we have been previously,” Mrs. Walton said.

Committed to providing as much assistance to parents as possible, Regents International School Pattaya will ensure the workshop will be run in three separate languages – English, Thai and Japanese – the most commonly spoken in Early Years.

“We have a fluent speaker running each component. Not every parent speaks English and we want to get maximum participation.”

Parents who don’t have young children at Regents are also welcome to attend. The first installment will be held on the 8th of January, at the start of term 2.
