Strengthening Relationships for Families with the Community
2 hours (0.2 CEUs)
Community-based services provide families and children with needed resources and information. Early care and education (ECE) professionals who learn about their community’s resources, and connect families with these resources, provide an important bridge to services.
Family engagement is foundational to supporting this process. ECE professionals who build relationships with families are better able to communicate and collaborate with families, and to help families access important information.
