What is Parent Engagement Services?
The Parent Engagement Services of NCCDI include different options for parents or guardians to acquire knowledge and skills to build a solid family foundation that provides a nurturing home environment. A wide array of training opportunities is offered to help parents develop confidence that reinforces the parents' role as their child's first teacher. The goal is to support the parent/child relationship which is critical to a child's success in school. NCCDI views the collaborative relationship with parents as the key to successful parent engagement that results in a child ready for school.
Parent Involvement is a Core Element to Head Start Success!
Parents are their children's first teachers--and children are born learners! Head Start supports this relationship and the role of parent-as-teacher by giving parents new skills, offering the opportunity to contribute through our parent meetings and Policy Council, and by offering opportunities to connect with each other and the communities we live in!
