Promoting parent and family engagement
NHSA’s 38th annual Parent and Family Engagement Conference is the only national event that focuses on how Head Start parents, families, and staff can best partner to promote both family engagement and children’s development.
The 2020 Parent and Family Engagement conference will explore a wide range of new resources and thinking on the forefront topics of young children and how Head Start programs can address the needs of children, families, and staff.
A variety of sessions and presenters will enable conference attendees to indulge in discussions designed for parents, staff and leadership. Learn about developmentally appropriate innovations that are a practitioner- and family-friendly. Experts will share techniques and skills you can take home to create safe environments in which children can learn and flourish.
We respect your schedule
Sessions are shorter—just an hour. They will be recorded, so you can catch up on those you miss at your leisure. Residents of Alaska and Hawaii, where morning sessions are more like night, receive registration discounts.
