FAMILY ENGAGEMENT ACTIVITIES
Our Child and Family Development services provide opportunities for families to become engaged in their child’s education by encouraging them to volunteer in their child’s classroom, and to set educational goals for their child with their child’s teacher. Through parent committee activities at each site, parents have the opportunity to assist staff in planning family engagement events and educational  eld trips. Each parent committee elects two representatives to serve on the program’s policy council. Families are offered training sessions that will help them enhance current skills, gain new skills, and increase social capital. Participation in these groups and in the classroom provides a venue for parents to build upon leadership and advocacy skills. In 2016 these included, but were not limited to:
• 570 parents and former parents volunteered 44,631 hours in their child’s classroom/home based visits, at group socialization and in completion of take- home activities
• 169 fathers identi ed their family needs through family assessment
• 151 fathers worked to set and achieve family goals
• 218 fathers participated in child development experiences for their child including home visits and parent-teacher conferences
• 69 fathers improved parenting skills through involvement in educational workshops

CHILDREN DEVELOP SKILLS FOR SCHOOL READINESS
“The newest research finds 13% return on investment for comprehensive, high-quality,
birth-to-five early education. This research analyzes a wide variety of life outcomes, such as health, crime, income, IQ, schooling and the increase in a mother’s income after returning to work due to childcare.”
