How does the COVID crisis change the way we partner with and support families of young children? This question has been at the top of everyone’s minds. Now more than ever, when families are potentially out of work, navigating food scarcity, and concerns for their health and the health of their loved ones, our job as educators is not to ask families to do what trained teachers do.
At ReadyRosie, we have been supporting schools and programs as they develop deep and reciprocal partnerships with families for over 8 years. Join us to learn about the foundational components of school and family partnership that educators can lean on for guidance during this unprecedented time. We’ll share how can educators center family perspectives, personalize their approach to home learning, and demonstrate to families that they are valued and respected.
