Sharing the Care: Partnering to Promote Child Well - Being

Women on computerZERO TO THREE’s Center for Training Services is proud to present Sharing the Care: Partnering to Promote Child Well-Being.  This project consists of 8 interactive, knowledge-building one-hour online lessons, focused on strengthening parent-provider relationships to promote the well-being of very young children. Each lesson will include activities, vignettes, practical resources and tools to encourage application of the content for cross-sector and multi-disciplinary professionals that work with very young children and their families. To provide opportunities that help participants put what they learn into practice, we are including facilitated, virtual Communities of Practice (CoP) sessions. The CoP will encourage cross-disciplinary learning, peer support and collaboration in approaches to partnering with parents to enhance family strengths and promote well-being and healthy early childhood development.

This opportunity will be of special interest to any community involved in promoting cross-sector, multi-disciplinary collaboration on behalf of young children and their families. Shared language, concepts and information supports the process of collaboration and coordination. Communities involved in initiatives promoting cross-disciplinary collaboration may be especially interested.

These may include:

  • Child Welfare and Early Care and Education grantees;
  • Systems of Care grantees
  • Strengthening Families
  • Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program

Expected outcomes of participating in the online lessons and COP
discussions include:

  • Gains in core knowledge areas
  • Application of knowledge in the workplace
  • Enhanced knowledge in promoting well-being for very young children and their families
  • Increased information and resource sharing across disciplines
