Why it's important

Research shows that parental involvement in children’s learning positively affects the child’s performance in both primary and secondary schools, leading to higher academic achievement and greater enjoyment of school.

 

Research also shows that the earlier parents become involved in their children’s literacy practices, the better the results and the longer-lasting the effects.

 

Reading with children has more impact on a child's learning than other factors, such as income, family size and level of parental education.
