NHSA’s 32nd Annual Parent and Family Engagement Conference is the only national event that focuses on how communities, parents, families, and Head Start program staff can best partner to promote both parent and family engagement and children’s learning and development.

Head Start is built from the ground up to address the needs of the whole child and therefore the whole family. With this focus at its core, Head Start has worked to create fruitful and lasting partnerships with parents, family members and communities for the past 50 years.

As the nation’s attention turns toward the future of early childhood education with an intensity not seen since Head Start’s founding 50 years ago, now is the time to call attention to the importance of partnerships in the success of Head Start. This event, like no other, highlights and explores best practices for effective partnerships straight from the programs successfully implementing them and provides hands-on training specifically designed for Policy Council chairs and members, as well as Board members.
