Families are their children’s first educators. From birth, families nurture their children to be healthy and successful in school and in life. Head Start and Early Head Start program staff share these goals and partner with families as they work to meet these goals. There are unique ways in which these partnerships matter for children who speak languages other than English. Young children can thrive when families and staff partner closely to support home languages, and embrace families’ cultures and traditions.
