Parent, Family, and Community Engagement Framework for Early Childhood Systems

Family engagement is essential to high-quality services for all children in early childhood care and education. From the beginning of life, families nurture their children and the capacities they will need to be ready for school.

The research-based Parent, Family, and Community Engagement (PFCE) Framework for Early Childhood Systems is a guide to understanding the collaborative relationship between parents and early childhood systems, programs, providers, family caregivers, and community service providers to promote positive, enduring change for children, families, and communities.

It is intended for state, tribal, and territory leaders, administrators, providers, parents, and other decisionmakers in early childhood systems and programs.
