Strategies to Support and Engage Families Virtually

Planning for Virtual Family Engagement

As you plan for the year ahead, assess which virtual engagement strategies will work best for your program and families. Consider these questions as you choose and plan to use virtual strategies to connect with families:

  • Supporting and engaging families virtually will give you and your colleagues experience in online environments. Operating in this environment also will give your program data about its effectiveness. What lessons and strategies can you take from these experiences and data?
  • What have you learned about effective engagement from the experiences of families as they have participated in different activities using virtual approaches?
  • What unique opportunities are possible through virtual family engagement to help improve family and child outcomes in the future?
