LCC Head Start/EHS/ECEAP believes that engaging families is one of the most important
aspects of the program. We respect parents/guardians, recognize that they are the
first and most important teachers in their child's life, and are responsible for their
child's well-being. Our family engagement program incorporates social and learning
opportunities for parents and their children. By centering our program on the essential
pieces of an early learning partner, we provide a holistic program that encompasses
education, health, parent engagement and social services.

At Lower Columbia College Head Start/EHS/ECEAP we help families and staff support
children's social/emotional health and development. One of the ways we do this in
our program is through the Social Emotional Support Services Program led by Licensed
Infant and Child Mental Health Specialists. Our goal is to provide early identification
and intervention for social and emotional needs so that children can be school ready.
Transitions can often be difficult for young children. They don't automatically know
how to understand or handle the Big feelings that may come with Hello and Goodbye
times in routines. Families may also find themselves looking for some support at
these times as well or searching for some ideas in supporting their child. In our
program we have many opportunities to help children practice learning the skills to
handle these parts of routines while they continue to build strong relationships.
We have some ideas for how we can be helpful together and look forward to building
on these ideas together with our families. (See - Ways to Say Goodbye-English and Ways to Say Goodbye-Spanish)
