Abstract

Title: Family Engagement in the Infant/Toddler Classroom

It can be challenging for families to leave their children in the care of someone else. Through involving families daily, children develop a stronger relationship with their primary caregivers. When families come into the classroom, they feel very comfortable, with the staff, children, and center. The purpose of this poster is to demonstrate and implement a variety of ways to engage parents and families who are a part of a toddler/infant classroom. Our goal is for families, community members, cooperating professionals, and Education majors to learn skills, games, and activities that will promote a child’s development at home. We will share the outcomes of our family engagement projects. This will include documentation from families, and how they responded to the engagement strategies.
