Parental Knowledge

Parental Knowledge

Another item within this grant is to maximize parental choice and knowledge. This includes providing information to Missouri families about the quality of early childhood care and education (ECCE) options. Improving the quality of those options to give parents a greater choice among ECCE programs will also be important. There are three activities that are designed to improve family engagement with their children's education and to increase family knowledge of available ECCE resources and programs: Parent Cafes, the National Parent Leadership Training Institute and the Home Visiting Coordination and Collaboration Project.
