The Office of Early Learning is partnering with the Florida Department of Education for Family Engagement Month in November 2017. Throughout the month, we will be sharing resources on social media to provide ideas for families to be more engaged in their child's well-being and education using #EngagedFamiliesFL.

For ideas about how to get engaged, check out the Family Engagement Month calendar for daily activity ideas. You can also view our Pinterest board for more resources.
