Guided Conversations: The Key to Family Engagement
Guided conversations are a critical way for Head Start programs to connect with the families they serve and to build strong relationships. Taking the time to sit down with families individually (as opposed to distributing a survey or other similar activity) is a way to demonstrate Head Start’s commitment to children and families. Intentional connection with families has been shown to provide staff with high-quality information that can inform program practice.
Parent Gauge is a unique tool that brings this exact practice into your centers. Check out our newest video featuring two current users who share how these guided conversations are making a difference in their programs. These programs are able to engage in everything from program planning to long-term outcomes.
