Advocacy and Engagement: Connecting with Families and the Community to Build Better Futures for Children

This session will be held at the Child Care Providers Coalition of Kansas Professional Development Event

Advocating on behalf of young children and for the field of family child care is an important responsibility, yet oftentimes providers and practitioners don’t know where to start, are low on time, or feel uncertain about how to effectively communicate with local, state, and federal officials. This workshop offers family child care providers an introduction into “Advocacy 101”. Providers will explore advocacy examples, tools, and platforms that are easy to use and don’t require a lot of their time. Participants will also work on developing a strong, but concise “core” messages to use whenever they are advocating for the importance of family child care. In addition, the workshop offers suggestions for ways to get families and community members involved in advocating on behalf of family child care.
