Using the Relationship-Based Competencies for Family Engagement

Watch this brief overview of the relationship-based competencies, or the RBCs, to learn more about the knowledge, skills, and individual practices that early childhood professionals-in every role-need to engage and partner with families. Each of the ten competencies honors families' unique cultures and circumstances. The RBCs can also be used to help professionals and community partners deliver coordinated services that are data-driven and support continuous improvement. The RBCs were developed for teachers, child care providers, family services staff, home visitors and their supervisors, CCDF, other state administrators, and their partners.
