Engaged families, and early care and education programs, play a vital role in fostering children’s early development and in helping children of immigrants succeed in school and life. This webinar highlights the benefits of supporting immigrant mothers and fathers as they promote their young children’s early learning at home and school. Lessons learned from two program interventions will be shared: 1) engaging Latina mothers as stakeholders involved in promoting their children’s elementary school achievement, and 2) supporting Mexican-American fathers’ positive parenting of their young children. Also presented is evidence suggesting that early care and education programs enhance academic and behavioral outcomes for young children in immigrant families. Implications for practice and recommendations for policy and future research will be discussed.
