At Moranbah Early Learning, we believe strong partnerships between parents and educators are a crucial part of every child’s journey towards success. Parent-educator meetings play a crucial role in charting this course, but sometimes navigating these conversations can feel daunting. What topics to raise? How to ensure constructive dialogue? We’ve put together some questions and insights to help you make the most of these invaluable meetings.

Initiating the Conversation:

  • Acknowledge your child’s strengths and positive learning moments. Let the educator know what you value about their work and dedication.
  • Seek updates on social and emotional development – How is your child interacting with peers? Are they comfortable expressing themselves freely?
  • Discuss specific areas like reading, writing, or numeracy. Understand how your child is learning and where they might need additional support.

Engaging in Collaborative Dialogue:

  • Get insights into the curriculum and how it’s tailored to your child’s individual needs. Explore ways to support their learning journey at home.
  • Don’t hesitate to discuss any worries you have about your child’s behaviour, development, or learning. Work together with the educator to identify solutions and support strategies.
  • Discuss preferred methods for updates and information sharing, whether it’s emails or calls.


  • These meetings are a two-way street: Share your observations and insights about your child at home.
  • Focus on collaboration: Work together with the educator to create a consistent and supportive learning environment for your child.
  • Ask follow-up questions: Don’t hesitate to clarify anything you don’t understand. Open communication is crucial for navigating the map effectively.

Moranbah Early Learning is always here to support you on this journey. Remember, parent-educator meetings are not just checkpoints, but opportunities to chart a brighter course for your child’s development. Don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s educator with any questions or concerns you may have. Together, we can make sure every child reaches their full potential!
