Family Engagement

Stronger Me, Stronger We  

Parents and families play the most powerful and influential role in children’s lives. As children’s first teachers, brain builders, tech navigators, advocates, and coaches, parents and families set the stage for success in the early years and early grades. The Campaign for Grade-Level Reading recognizes that parents and families are the secret sauce!

Research confirms:

  • Parents’ nurturing interactions foster their young children’s healthy brain development and social skills.
  • Parents’ regular and consistent activities with their young children positively affect pre-literacy, literacy, and social-emotional skills.
  • Parents’ involvement in their children’s early childhood education and kindergarten transition helps foster positive outcomes.
