Families offer to program staff a unique and invaluable perspective on their child?s behavior, developmental progress, and learning styles. Likewise, program staff who develop and maintain relationships within the larger community can provide better quality support and information to families. Teachers share the primary responsibility for establishing both types of relationships, and in each case, children benefit the most. This resource focuses on NAEYC?s Families and Communities Program Standards; use it to find out how you can get everyone more involved. 


This is one of nine booklets addressing the Standards and Criteria specific to NAEYC Accreditation of early childhood education programs. (To view the other eight titles, search by title for ?accreditation criteria.?) Be advised that if your program enrolls in NAEYC Self-Study (the first step toward Accreditation) it will receive a copy of this booklet, among other resources, as part of the cost of enrollment.
