Solutions Webinar – How to Increase & Monitor Family Engagement (and In-Kind) While We’re Virtual
Presented by Jasmine Taylor, President & CEO – Kindly
In the midst of a pandemic, agencies have spent the past year pivoting to online learning; leaving many administrators wondering what family engagement actually looks like at home. The good news is, with your assistance, parents have been given tools, guidance, and support to help with their little one’s continued development during this unprecedented time. But how do you capture this engagement (and the tons of in-kind they’ve generated in the process)? One agency we spoke with asks parents to take photos of their reading logs then text them to staff to process and manage. Text messages from hundreds of families each week have to pass through the hands of multiple staff members, get translated into emails, and then input into their system to be calculated manually. Thankfully, there’s a better way! FINALLY, there is an in-kind management software combined with child development and family engagement in ONE POWERFUL system!

I have been to management workshops, not leadership training. This has totally changed my perspective and encouraged me to propel forward in developing my skills.
I am honored and humbled to be a recipient of the Region 9 Head Start Association’s Legacy Scholarship. The scholarship helped me get one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a Head Start Director.
I took part in The disproportionate impact of COVID 19, and how to provide “real” support for black/brown children and families and I just want to say this was an amazing webinar. I hope we can look forward to further conversation on this topic.
Thank you so much for making events like this! I really enjoyed and learned so much teaching strategies to implement STEM in the classroom.
The HR Network was an excellent opportunity to network and learn the best practices from other HR professionals within Head Start programs. You will be amazed by the level of talent and experience of the participants.
The Summer Camp training was powerful and inspiring! Each presenter was very engaging, it’s hard to even pick a favorite session!
The Leadership Challenge training was very relevant to my work as a Head Start leader! Great facilitation; stayed with the program yet allowed time for individual and small group reflections.
