Enhance Child Development and Family Growth: A PEER-Centered Approach
Family education plays a pivotal role in early childhood by fostering involvement, creating a supportive learning environment, and promoting well-being and success of children as they grow into school-agers. Family growth and development empowers families with the knowledge and skills needed to be effective partners in their child’s educational and social emotional journey. PEER Group Learning enhances the efforts towards accreditation for family engagement by creating collaborative relationships and encouraging family involvement in the program and home setting. The Power of PEER is a family engagement approach to getting families excited about what you are doing in your learning environment, and making those connections in the home!
This seven-week learning series will introduce you to the Power of PEER, how to bring PEER into your program and learning environments, and how to connect families with one another to learn from and share about PEER. You will also receive FREE Activity Cards and PEER books to support high-quality family-child interactions and 6 training hours.
