  • Description

Early childhood researchers have uncovered ample evidence of the critical role families and caregivers play cultivating early learning and the healthy development of young children. There is also growing recognition about the importance of family engagement not only in the early years but throughout a child's life and in the many settings where they live, learn, and play. However, there is often less clarity about what authentic family engagement looks like in practice and how to effectively engage diverse families in responsive and culturally relevant ways.
