Navigator Coaching

Making classroom skills work

It's hard work to make new skills part of family life. Our Educational Navigators help parents connect Family Learning classes with the real world.

Navigators follow our families' progress and help them integrate new skills into everyday life. With home visits and personal support, our families turn activities that could be intimidating into great family opportunities.

Here is just a sampling of common questions from our parents:

  • How do I stay involved with schoolwork when I'm working a night shift and my wife/husband is home with the kids?
  • How do we get more involved in our child’s school?
  • How can I help when my child is having problems with schoolwork? 

What happens when our families let us know about problems or concerns? Our navigators create lesson plans or arrange a special class. Their support builds parents’ confidence.
