Head Start recognizes the need to support families with social networks as an important way to help children thrive. Programs, such as Family Fun Nights, can create a variety of opportunities to encourage family connections. Options include events like picnics, on-site workdays for volunteers to spruce up the program site, and open houses. Programs can also connect families to community activities, such as library reading times, health clinics, and community celebrations. Social media has become an important communication tool that early childhood programs use to build relationships with and among parents. As social media becomes more popular, programs need to consider policies that reflect their particular culture as well as best practices in respecting the privacy issues of families and staff.
