This workshop is designed to build knowledge to strengthen engagement with families through valuable partnerships. Educators in the past have struggled to see the value of a partnership with families focusing instead on problems or challenges.
Participants will explore how pedagogy is enhanced through collaboration with families. Educators will be able expand their communications approach, interactions and relationships with families to support the growth and development of children.
- Why is collaboration so important in child development?
- The difference between family involvement and partnerships
- How parent involvement and participation is only half the story
- Ideas and concepts to develop true quality partnerships
