Your voice matters and your story can make a difference!

As a parent, grandparent, aunt/uncle or other caregiver in a child’s life, you see the benefits of working in close partnership with your child’s early care and education provider firsthand. These positive relationships form the fabric of quality family engagement and the lack of strong relationships between caregivers and families can lead to serious child care breakdowns.
By sharing your experiences, you can help our communities and policymakers identify what works, prioritize the changes needed, and develop innovative strategies to advance a safe, affordable, and high quality early care and learning system that works for all families.
When you share your story below, you will hear from one of our staff for the opportunity to have your voice amplified through our Family Voices Blog/Vlog Series, eNews, and our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram), to name a few.
