Explore this recorded session from the Society for Research in Child Development 2021 Biennial Meeting (SRCD 2021) focused on web-based professional development approaches that aim to target coach-caregiver interactions to improve caregiver-child interactions.

Since 1997, the Head Start Family and Child Experiences Survey (FACES) has been a regular source of nationally representative data on Head Start programs, centers, classrooms, children, and families. Until the 2015—2016 program year, however, FACES had not been conducted in Region XI AI/AN Head Start programs. This was due in part to the time and resources required to engage in the intensive community-based planning and implementation process needed to successfully carry out the study...

This recorded session from ACF’s National Research Conference on Early Childhood 2020 (NRCEC 2020) featured a presentation on the We Grow Together Professional Development System (WGT) field test (beginning at time marker 22:45) alongside presentations from two other projects.

We Grow Together (WGT) is a professional development (PD) system for caregivers working with infants and toddlers in center-based care and family child care homes. Caregivers are supported in planning and using the WGT practices through relationship- and practice-based coaching from a trained local PD provider who can be a coach, supervisor, mentor, or anyone else who provides ongoing PD. WGT is based on nationally recommended best practices for interacting with infants and toddlers that are measured with the Q-CCIIT observational tool.

This webinar provides a selection of findings from questions to children’s program and center directors on how they were providing services during the COVID-19 pandemic in the spring of 2020 and the perspectives of the Office of Head Start Region XI Regional Program Manager and a Region XI Head Start program director at the onset of the pandemic.

This webinar is the first of a series on findings from the second round of AIAN FACES (first done in 2015). The webinar provides a preview of first findings from fall 2019, information on how programs can use data from the study, and the perspectives of the Office of Head Start Region XI Regional Program Manager and a Region XI Head Start program director on the data.
