Family and Community Engagement Tools (FaCET) provide a vehicle for parents and staff from diverse cultures to better understand each other and to create an environment where all children thrive. The FaCET survey for early care and education programs promotes and measures family engagement via questions that refl ect what families care most about. Think Small’s involvement in the implementation of this model aligns with our strategic plan of ensuring parents and caregivers are engaged in supporting and preparing their children for kindergarten. Using these tools increases and deepens parent engagement in program design and in policy decisions that affect them, helping to prevent problems rather than correcting them after they occur. The tools give providers practical information.
