Redefining Family Engagement For Today’s Parents And Caregivers

“I recently visited Bright Beginnings, an early childhood and family learning center in Washington, D.C. Even the fact that they call themselves a “family learning center” speaks to their emphasis on providing not only a safe and nurturing place for the children in their care, but also a supportive environment for parents.I had the opportunity to hear Antoine, the father of 2-year-old Amir and a current college junior himself, speak about the importance of Bright Beginning’s fatherhood program. This group of fathers meets weekly to talk about the joys and challenges that come with being a father. They provide support to each other so that they ultimately can all enhance their personal and parental development.”
