1. Engaging Diverse Families

Meaningful engagement with families in an early childhood program supports children's early learning and later academic success. (NAEYC, 2017). Because of the unique position in the lives of families and children, early childhood educators need to examine and improve strategies for partnering with families, especially diverse families. Examine how culture affects your own beliefs around family and parent engagement, and explore ideas about how educators can create a climate of trust by honoring diversity, and communicating in a collaborative way to support the care and education of their children.

Observing children in the daily life of their early childhood program or classroom is a powerful way of assessing them. This course aims to convey the power of observational assessment for gaining a rich understanding of children so that you can use that information to plan how to meet their learning needs. Participants will learn about ways to observe and document observations during a busy day. The course will include viewing video vignettes, small-group activities, and reflection to develop participants’ observation and documentation skills.
