3 STEP Program

3 Step Early Childhood Parent Education

With this program parents learn how to utilize their home environments and every day activities to enhance their child’s learning.

PASO Program


The purpose of the Providers Advancing School Outcomes (PASO) training program is to create an equitable, replicable, community based model program for providing professional development in early childhood education to Latino, Family, Friend and Neighbor (FFN) providers to: promote school readiness to Latino children, birth to 5 years old, and to prevent the achievement gap between Latino and non-Latino children before they enter Kindergarten.

Family Engagement Program

Schools cannot raise student achievement on their own. To do so, they must build a culture of engagement for parents. This Program strengthens schools’ family engagement approaches and practices through coaching, technical assistance, and program implementation.
