Family Engagement

Choosing an early care and education home or center is one the biggest decisions a family makes for their child. DC CCC recognizes that every family’s needs are different and is committed to supporting families holistically as they explore options for high-quality early care and education in the District. DC CCC directly engages with families in a variety of ways including facilitating connections to early care and education providers; publishing a bi-weekly resource-rich newsletter; and hosting an array of engaging programs.

  • Early Care and Education Resources: Families can search and view profiles of early care and education providers in the District. Families have the ability to refine their search based on factors that may be most important to them and addresses their individual needs.
  • Family Connections: Family Connections is the bi-weekly newsletter for families produced by DC CCC. Each newsletter is filled with a wide-range of engaging resources and activities accessible to families as they support their children at home.
  • Harambee: A Celebration of Families and Communities Learning Together: The Harambee event series is a collection of signature programming hosted by DC CCC and partners. Each event provides families with the opportunity to acquire new information, tools and tips as they support their child’s development at home. Families also have the opportunity to make connections with one another through Harambee and gain additional support from the community of participating families.
