Family Engagement is an interactive process through which early care and education providers/professionals and family members build positive, goal-oriented relationships. This session will use the PFCE framework to set the context for meeting the needs of children and their families in formal and informal programs, as well as state systems, using research and effective practices. The session will discuss how the infrastructure for PFCE impacts opportunities and challenges to advancing effective engagement practices.
