Family Engagement is based on positive, goal oriented relationships. Meeting the goals of families requires that family voice is curated and that programs and early childhood systems are responsive. This workshop will provide opportunities to explore strengths-based models of family engagement that promote equity, family and community voice from informal partners (e.g., libraries, museums), and a method to structure conversations with families about healthy child development and learning, among other topics.
