Description

This 2-day conference takes an in-depth look at the NEW Family Engagement standards and requirements. This conference will provide strategies for supporting children's well-being and promoting children's learning and development. This conference builds upon Head Start's "two generation" approach. Participants will learn to use the "two generation" philosophy through engaging families in their child's development. The course broadens the idea of "parents as teachers" beyond the instructional role parents' play by looking at the entire family-learning environment. This conference gives you strategies to support family learning experiences as they naturally occur. Participants increase the capacity of staff working directly with families to build skills, engage families and offer them support based on their strengths, interest and needs and develop and implement family partnership agreements. Participants will also examine and practice strategies surrounding the professional issues of confidentiality, roles and boundaries and record keeping.
