Strong family engagement with early childhood programs and schools is key to children’s healthy development and supports their ability to maintain early learning gains. Join two of the Early Learning Network’s research leaders to explore the role of family engagement and at-home learning activities in supporting children’s development.

This webinar will help you:

-Discover what the network is finding regarding family engagement and the implications for families and practitioners.

-Learn at-home activities to support children’s constrained (basic) and unconstrained (more complex) skills.

-Gain a deeper understanding of the link between family engagement and positive outcomes for children, families and educators.
