The Center will showcase research-based practices related to family support services, strong parent-child relationships, parent early literacy strategies, parent social networks, early learning educational transitions, parent leadership and advocacy, and professional development for Head Start staff who work with families. The Center will also assist States in improving the kinds of family engagement practices that are a necessary part of a well coordinated system of early care and education.
