Pull It Together

Because staff are often the only individuals many families interact with from your program, they need to consistently and deliberately engage families. Staff should understand how to help families better support their children by tapping into their skills and strengths and supporting them in overcoming challenges. Help staff build skills to

  • Reach out to families, and form strong relationships and partnerships
  • Provide involvement opportunities that fit family schedules and needs
  • Assist families as they continue to support their children's success in school and outside it
