Meeting National Expectations for Partnering with Families
Sánchez, Claudia; Walsh, Bridget
Dimensions of Early Childhood, v45 n2 p20-28 2017
The field of early childhood education supports the notions that early childhood programs need the active support of families and that the school and the home are the most critical environments impacting children's development (Mart, Dusenbury, & Weissberg, 2011). The vast majority of state standards do not align with family involvement guidelines from national organizations. This article introduces six national organizations, presents key themes resulting from an analysis of standards, and proposes ideas for those interested in infusing their programs with nationally recognized best practices for family involvement.
