WEBINAR: Using Culturally Responsive Practices During Transitions

June 29, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Each family experiences transitions in their own way that is shaped by their cultures, traditions, past, and expectations. Families may see transitions — to and from early childhood programs — as both an opportunity and a challenge. Through culturally responsive relationships, staff can strengthen child and family outcomes before, during, and after a child’s transition.

This webinar is a part of Building Culturally Responsive Relationships with Families from ERSEA to Transition Series.

Building relationships with families is one of the most important things we can do to support the best outcomes for children and families. Understanding families’ cultures–and our own– is essential to building respectful partnerships with families. This is especially true during challenging times for families and communities.

This new four-part webinar series will focus on building and nurturing culturally responsive relationships with families. Participants will learn strategies for partnering with families during their time in the program–from ERSEA through to the child’s transition out of the program. We will draw on foundational concepts from the Head Start Parent, Family, and Community Engagement Framework and the Relationship-Based Competencies to Support Family Engagement.

You can register for each webinar individually or sign up for the whole series.
