The Families and Communities Committee strives to be made up of majority parents and caregivers, with providers in partnership, to help create an early childhood system that mirrors the diverse needs of Vermont families. By providing parents and caregivers opportunities to bring forward thoughts and concerns, and partner in systems conversations and decision-making processes, families become leaders in designing a responsive system that works for them.
The Families and Communities Committee recently completed the Early Childhood Family Engagement Assessment to inform and improve how people who serve Vermont’s children and families respect and engage families as partners. The project seeks to inform each level of Vermont’s early childhood system – including families, communities and systems – about how to strengthen families as decision makers, strategies to nurture resilient families, and ultimately help children thrive. The project centered around a Family Engagement survey which was developed and executed to embody family engagement principals at each level of the process.
