Family engagement is a critical and integral component of high-quality early childhood care and education policy and programs for children’s learning and development. Using family engagement literature, state examples, and consultations with parents and other experts, we identified eight key indicators of high-quality family engagement. This session of Let’s Talk presents those indicators and discusses how to incorporate them into quality assurance systems in line with the Parent, Family, Community Engagement Framework for Early Childhood Systems. The session also explores examples of state application.
