Parent and family engagement in the preschool years is linked to children’s success in kindergarten and beyond. As parents and families of Head Start children, there are many ways for you to become involved and stay engaged in the program, and in your children’s education and future. We value parents and know that ultimately you will have the biggest impact on your child as their first teacher.
Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their education do better in school. Getting involved at the preschool level will prepare you to be active once your children enter elementary school, middle school, and high school. Schools need parent and family involvement to succeed just as much as your children do.
