Promoting Family Engagement at Scribbles Early Learning Program
The Scribbles Early Learning Program is committed to supporting the development and learning of each child within the program community. Within each of the classrooms and the larger program, families are embraced as partners. As the director for the program, your goal is to work to enhance and strengthen the current model through integration of evidence-based practices. You have gathered information about the program, as reflected in the “Scribbles Early Learning Center Program Description” document. In your conversation with program staff, you have identified that although there are many opportunities and structures in place to support family engagement, the majority of families within Scribbles Early Learning Program are not presently engaged as partners in the early childhood classroom/program community. You have decided to develop two workshops, one for staff and one for families, with the goal of sharing information that will increase and enhance family engagement.
