Stay True To Your Program’s Mission— Encourage and Involve Families

Families are children’s first and longest advocates and nurturers. That’s why it’s important to ensure that your program is filled with strong, enduring family engagement. When you encourage and involve families in your program, it can impact lifelong health, developmental, and academic outcomes for children. And what better way to successfully implement Head Start than through impactful relationships?
