The home visits program.
The home visits program is Ste-Famille pre-primary school’s key strategy to enhance quality education. The program, involving three permanent home visits workers, ensures that there is constant dialogue with the children’s parents and family regarding educational aspects of the child’s development. It also provides for the social protection of families, especially the child’s caregivers.
The home visitors are trained to conduct monthly home visits at families whose children are registered at the pre-primary school, as well as those whose children attend Terre Rouge government primary school and who were registered at the pre-primary school before.
The intervention of a part-time psychologist is also a component of this program. Children are referred to her for individual psychological follow-up and she supports the home visits workers in their mission.
