The significance of the parental involvement in pre-school education is widely recognized. However, this is not the case in Greek pre-school settings. By contrast with the UK and other countries around the world, less attention is paid on parents’ role in their children’s education in the Greek system. In addition, the literature in this field is limited.
The present study aims a) to clarify the forms of participation parents are currently engaged within Greek pre-school settings, b) to explore what forms of participation they aspire to and finally, c) to ascertain which forms of parental participation the educational staff wish. More precisely, this study will present some of the most frequently used models and typologies with regards to parental participation. These models guided our observations and interviews in a particular case study, which tries to investigate the ways parents participate in their children’s education, in a Greek, public pre-school setting.
