Parent Involvement

Parent Involvement means that families take an active role in their child's education and development, helping to make decisions about their program in partnership with other parents, staff and community members. The contribution of family experience, perspective and participation is of tremendous value to our Early Head Start Program. Parents can share in making decisions for the AII Early Head Start through the Parent Committee and the Policy Council.

Parent Committees provide every parent of an enrolled child with the opportunity to assist in the development of activities that address their interests and needs and that support the education and healthy development of their children. Some ways you can participate include:
