Bridging the Gap
Vision for the Programme
To bridge the gap between home and school, to make “OUR” child more competent and less helpless.
 
To coordinate parent-teacher efforts to achieve a seamless and accelerated development of the child both in the classroom and at home.
 
 
What is the ‘Gap’?

The “gap” is in “understanding” - that the teacher does nothing beyond the curriculum and class, while the parent does nothing outside of “providing” at home. Parents and teachers need to put in equal efforts to ensure overall education of a child.

Traditionally, parents and teachers interacted only once or twice a year to discuss “test-scores” and not the process or the learning journey. This meant that parents remained ill-informed about their child’s overall development and the school’s efforts. As a result, the children suffered the effects of misdirected efforts on the part of all the stakeholders in their development.

 
How can we build a “Bridge” across the “Gap”?
 
At Riverside, we have built a curriculum which is child-centered but where the child, his parents and the teachers are all equally important partners. The parents, thus, need to be fully informed and “educated” regarding the ongoing efforts at school, so they can supplement and enhance the activities that the school initiates.
