Engaging Families from the Start

A strong relationship between families and Head Start staff is essential to promoting healthy child development and positive learning outcomes. Strong relationships are rooted in trust and comfort, which you can build by being genuine, sincere, curious about them and their goals, and supporting them as they work toward those goals.

Goal Setting with Families

The goals of the Head Start training are to develop skills and practices for developing strong relationships with families in order to help families identify and set goals.
