Family & Community Partnership
In August of 2011, The National Head Start Center has implemented the Head Start Parent, Family and Community Engagement (PFCE) Framework, the first of its kind. The Parent, Family and Community Engagement Framework provide programs with a research based, organizational guide for implementing relevant Head Start Program Performance Standards. Because supporting children's school readiness is an ongoing partnership between staff and families, the PFCE Framework is a tool that all staff and families can use. The entire Head Start and Early Head Start staff has received training.
