Workshop offered to daycare providers
The Head Start Program of Franklin-Vance-Warren Opportunity, Inc., will have a “Family Engagement” workshop for licensed daycare providers in Warren County.
The workshop will take place on Thursday, Aug. 22, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Warren County campus of Vance-Granville Community College, building 4, room 432. A light meal will be included.
Daycare providers will receive two in-service training credit hours. Topics will include: opportunities for parents to further their education, presented by Kyle Burwell of Vance-Granville Community College; reaching out to parents as volunteers, presented by Nancy Gray of the United Way Volunteer Center; and the Head Start Model of Family Engagement, presented by Rachel Hedrick, family engagement consultant for Vance, Franklin, Warren and Nash counties.
The event is part of the Race to the Top-Early Learning Challenge Grant and linked to the work of the N.C. Division of Child Development and Early Education.
Family engagement standards are adapted from the Head Start Performance Standards.
