What can I expect from my Family Support Staff
- The Family Support Staff are usually one of the first people you see from Head Start. They start out the year with your family and get to know who you are and how they might be able to help you. They also set up a time for your first Home Visit with your child’s teacher.
- Head Start recommends that all families participate in the family partnership process. Family Support Staff will set up a time with you in September or October to do the Family Partnership Agreement.
- Family Support Staff are recommended to make monthly phone calls to each family to review goals and see if there are any changes in your family situation and to see if there is any way they can help out.
- They may call if your child is absent to see how they can help.
- The Family Support Staff also have a section in your monthly classroom newsletter.
