With the goal of promoting positive, enduring change for children, families and their communities, the NCPFCE, led by BTC, has developed and released the research-based Parent, Family and Community Engagement Framework for Early Childhood Systems . The Framework describes the components of early childhood systems as they relate to parent, family, and community engagement, and specifies elements that can be coordinated to most effectively impact child and family outcomes. The Framework helps leaders, administrators, providers, and other decision-makers understand the collaborative relationship between parents and the early childhood systems, programs, providers, and community-based organizations that support them. 
The Framework can be downloaded for free in English and Spanish. Additional resources are available to facilitate the Framework’s implementation, including assessment workbooks and sample scenarios.
