As parents and families of Head Start children, there are many ways for you to become involved and stay engaged in the program, and in your children’s education and future. Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their education do better in school. Getting involved at the preschool level will prepare you to be active once your children enter elementary school, middle school, and high school. Schools need parent and family involvement to succeed just as much as your children do.
As parents and family members, Head Start welcomes you in the classroom. The program also teaches you how to create a learning environment at home in an effort to support classroom learning.
To become better role models for your children, Head Start will help you explore opportunities to expand your education, find or get a better job, and tap into support groups where parents and family members encourage each other.
Head Start recognizes that parents and families are the strongest supporters of their children and encourages involvement as their children’s advocates. By law, Head Start programs must help parents and families support their children as they enter Early Head Start or Head Start, and as they transition from Head Start to kindergarten, another preschool program, or a child care setting.
Some of the ways you can support your children include:
Becoming an effective advocate for your children requires becoming involved in their education and their lives. And being involved in your children’s lives is what it takes to be a great and successful parent!
We ask that you do not bring children under the age of 18 with you when you attend training presented by Region 7 ESC. Thank you for your cooperation.
