Webinar
Administrators of early care and education programs understand the importance of building relationships with families. However, they may not be aware the messages they communicate do not convey the message that family engagement is valued and encouraged. Administrators may also have challenges getting staff on board with building partnerships with families. Some administrators and staff may feel competent and have experience working with adults, others may be unsure where to begin. What families see, hear, and read from the time they first walk through the door to enroll their child, will set the tone for whether this will truly become an authentic partnership. This session explores strategies for helping administrators examine their role in building family partnerships.

Webinar | This event is not open to the public
The frenetic pace that characterizes the professional lives of most early childhood directors leaves little time for reflection. Yet it is through reflection that educators often gain insight into the issues and problems that confront them. This session provides a passport for self-discovery. Through thought-provoking questions and engaging exercises you will have an opportunity to reflect on where you are in your journey through adulthood, determine the gap between your current and ideal work environment, and become a self-mentor for envisioning new possibilities for the years ahead.
