Family Engagement recognizes the importance of parental and family involvement both across the state and within all aspects of the early childhood care and education system. The team thus seeks to recruit parents who can work closely with early childhood professionals to advise and inform them and to advocate for all Nebraska families. Family Engagement embraces inclusivity and seeks families who represent the broad range of Nebraska voices and who come from all areas of the state.
