dc.description.abstract This study was designed to investigate The Role of Parents involvement in education of their Pre-School children and its relationship with children‟s academic performance and development of art of good manners. Five sample schools were selected among Pre-Schools of two weredas of Kirkos Sub City. 123 parents, 19 teachers, 2 principals, and 1 supervisor have been participated in the research, in one or another way. Questionnaires were administered to collect data from parents, teachers, and school coordinators about the role of parents participation in education of their preschool children.. Interview was also used for some key informants. Secondary sources such as school assessment documents which indicate children‟s achievement; communication books, parents‟ attendance during teacher-parent conference days, parents general meeting days attendances; which could indicate the frequency of parents‟ participation in school matters, and children‟s conduct sheets were used. Findings from the data analysis indicated that despite its priceless importance, parents‟ involvement in education of their young children in the investigated preschools was not encouraging. Parents undermine pre-school as a place of fun used for feeding and staying place for their children during work days. The main challenges of parents‟ participations were: Lack of knowledge or education; Lack of awareness and enough information about how to raise children and how to support them at home on their learning; becoming busy in other businesses and social responsibilities, leaving matters of education for the school alone. But children whose parents participate in their preschool have scored better academic performance and art of good manners than children whose parents do not. Therefore, parents, teachers, school administrators, wereda education offices, government officials, the school society in general have to work together to increase the awareness of parents and maximize their participation through training and workshops on the role of parents, the way they support their children, and on the implication of their involvement in their children‟s early learning to the success of upcoming primary education and the consequences on the life of their children, at large. en_US
