success will also be discussed.
examine our roles as educare and educational professional to support
this reciprocal relationship between children and schools. We will
clarify our role in preparing children for school and helping schools

positions and attitudes that create further separation and barriers.
The children, families, schools and the community need us to help
prepare our children and our schools so each child can succeed.
