One of the unique elements of Head Start that is different from other early childhood education programs is our work with families. We have 7 family engagement outcomes that we strive to meet through our work with families, as we know that a healthy, successful family leads to children who are ready for and successful in school.
The PFCE Outcomes:
Family Well-Being: parents and families are safe, healthy and have increased financial security
Parent-Child Relationships: starting with becoming a parent, parents and families develop warm relationships that nurture their child's learning and development
Families as Life-Long Educators: Parents and families observe, guide, promote and participate in the everyday learning of their children
Families as Learners: Parents and families advance their own learning interests through education, training, and/or other experiences that support their parenting, career and life goals
Family Engagement in Transitions: Parents and families support and advocate for their child's learning and development through transitions into new learning environments
Family Connections to Peers and Communities: Parents and families form connections with peers and mentors in formal or informal social networks that are supportive and/or educational and that enhance social well-being and community life
Families as Advocates and Leaders: Parents and families participate in leadership development, decision-making, program policy development, and community and state organizing activities to improve children's development and learning experiences
