Parent engagement during home visits in Early Head Start and Head Start: Useful strategies for practitioners

This study explores strategies used by early childhood professionals (ECPs) involved in a school readiness intervention to support parent engagement in young children's learning. In this study, we used video recordings to understand the ECP-parent interactions during Early Head Start and Head Start home visits. We coded the videos for the number of parent engagement strategies that were used by ECPs as well as the quality of parent engagement during visits, including the amount of parent-child interaction that took place during the visits. Findings have implications for the implementation of the Head Start Parent, Family and Community Engagement (PFCE) Framework, and the professional development of early childhood professionals.
