IMPACT OF PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT ON PRE-SCHOOL CHILDREN’S PARTICIPATION IN SCIENCE ACTIVITIES IN KAYOLE DIVISION, EMBAKASI, (NAIROBI COUNTY)

PDF version

Parental involvement on their children’s participation in Science activities has been a
major debate and a serious concern among educationists and curriculum developers all
over the world for many years. However, it was not given the empirical value and due
attention until recently. This is because parents for a very long time did not see the need
for their involvement in their children’s school activities. It is for this reason even today
that many parents continue delegate all responsibilities of schooling children to teachers.
Since it has not been found out that home environment and school environments are
complementary as well as extent of complementarities, the overall responsibility still lie
on teachers. However in recent studies which will be discussed in this project, it has
been proved that home and school environments needs to be improved and enriched to
improve school learning in general.  Participation in academic as well as extra curricula
activities needs strong parental involvements.
