Our goal is to work with parents to build trust; identify family goals and
strengths; and help parents obtain services and support. Staff members
can provide referrals for resources in the community, such as food,
clothing, transportation, and counseling.  

Parent Involvement

Parent Involvement is voluntary on the part of parents of enrolled
children, but it is CRITICAL to the success of our program.  It is also
critical to your child’s success in school.  Head Start provides many
opportunities for parents to assist at the center. Head Start programs
need and depend on parent participation and support.

Families are encouraged to participate in:
  • Home Visits by teachers and other staff members
  • Parent-Teacher conferences
  • Education curriculum and lesson planning meetings
  • Parent Committee and Policy Council/Committee Meetings
  • Parent education activities and workshops
  • Volunteer training and classroom volunteering
  • Observing children in the classroom
  • Participating in take home activities

Parents and volunteers are expected to abide by the RCCDC Discipline
Policy and Adult Conduct Policy at all times while in the center or
attending any program activities.
