FAMILY ENGAGEMENT AS PARENT INVOLVEMENT

Parent and family engagement is essential to quality early care and education. Whether providing child care, conducting home visits, offering family support services, or intervening early when a child has special needs, the partnership with parents is fundamental to providing quality early childhood services. Evidence demonstrates that when the partnership is strong, children form better relationships, feel good about themselves, and do better in school. It is only natural that all of those who enter the lives of young children work together with other adults and parents to give a child safe, healthy and meaningful early experiences.
