You are working for an early childhood center in your neighborhood. It has recently opened, and the director has placed you in charge of giving a 30-minute presentation on the program’s family and community engagement plan and approach.
Your responsibility will be to develop a presentation that reflects your center’s philosophy for family and community engagement based on current research and best practice. Your goal is to motivate parents and organizations in your community to participate in the family and community engagement plan for your school. You will need to include an overview of the plan as well as any assistance available to families through the organizations invited. Please use your creativity to ensure that your presentation is encouraging, enlightening, and inviting.
