From Parents to Partners: Building a Family-Centered Early Childhood Program
1 Jan 2006
Partnering with parents is essential if your early childhood program is to succeed. From Parents to Partners explores the reasons and methods for developing ongoing partnerships with parents and other family members. It also provides the tools and strategies you need to build the communication and support networks within which these partnerships thrive. Throughout the book are interactive, hands-on exercises to help you adapt these principles to your individual beliefs, practices, and experiences. Newsletters, bulletin boards, and parent conferences are only some of the practical tools you can use to involve parents in their child's care and education. This innovative, center-tested approach is designed to include the whole family unit--not just the parents--in the partnership.
