The effect of parent involvement in schools has been a research concern for decades. However, little research has been conducted on the impact of building parent communities within a preschool program. This study aims to investigate the effects of developing relationships among parents, building parent community, and determining whether or not this increases overall parent satisfaction and involvement. A questionnaire survey will be carried out on 26 families using a pre/post-test pre-experimental design. The findings will show that building positive adult relationships among parents increases overall parent satisfaction and involvement.
