Deliverable 5 Family Letter


Validate family and community as partners in early childhood education.


It’s the beginning of the school year at ABC Academy and Care, and you need to write a letter to the families of the children in your program. The purpose of your letter is to demonstrate your knowledge about the importance of connecting with families and their community, so the families will know you are committed to being their advocate. You want to be a support in their lives.

Write a letter to families that includes:

  1. Your understanding of reasons educators might have difficulty connecting with parents, and what your role is in making sure that does not happen.
  2. Benefits to children in teacher/family partnerships.
  3. Benefits to teachers in teacher/family partnerships.
  4. Benefits to families in teacher/family partnerships.
