Family Engagement (Core)

We’re all in this interactive process together as staff and families work towards achieving the goals that families and children set for themselves.

Children are the heart of the family. Children are the future of a community. Nurturing children to become happy, involved adults start with the interaction between their families and the Head Start staff in this worthwhile and rewarding program.

Beginning with educating families about child-rearing and encouraging participation in their children’s education, there is mutual respect regarding culture and language between staff and parents. Two-way communication also plays a major role as parents and families are assisted in their own education, training, career and life goals.

By utilizing available resources and receiving positive reinforcement, strong family engagement results in strong results. For children, their families and their communities.
