Family Involvement and Communication: Parent Programming
The following are examples of meaningful opportunities for families to be engaged in their child’s education:
1. Home visits, including home visitation programs such as HIPPY, Parents as Teachers;
2. Formal and informal parent/teacher conferences;
3. Classroom visits and options for parents and families to participate in classroom activities;
4. Parent education;
5. Family involvement in decision making about their child and about their child’s early childhood program;
6. Opportunities to engage families outside of the regular service day; and
7. We ask all parents to commit to 12 hours of service in the pre-k class.
