Throughout the month of November, we want to celebrate Florida’s families. Join us as we encourage early learning coalitions, providers and families to collaborate and communicate to support children’s learning and healthy development.
- Family Engagement Month Activity Calendar.
- Family Pledge.
- Tips for Providers.
- Tips for Coalitions.
- Flyer for Vroom Week.
- Additional resources.
Vroom Week is Nov. 16-20. During Vroom Week, we encourage you to introduce families to the Vroom app or Vroom texting so they will get daily vroom tips to support their child’s learning. There is a Vroom Week flyer on OEL’s website with a suggested activity for coalitions for each day of Vroom Week.
The Child Care Resource and Referral State Network invites you to participate in a Family Engagement Month Contest and a Vroom Week Contest. To enter the Family Engagement Month Contest, submit a
summary of the creative ways, including pictures, of how your coalition promoted Family Engagement and Vroom during the month of November with the families you serve or in your community. The coalition that submits the most creative ways they encouraged Family Engagement will win a prize! To win the prize for the Vroom Week Contest, post activities your coalition used each day of Vroom Week to social media using the hashtag #VroomWeekFL and tag @JoinVroom. The coalition with the most social media participation will win a prize!
Be sure to use #EngagedFamiliesFL when posting your Family Engagement activities and pictures on social media. The Office of Early Learning will be sharing #EngagedFamiliesFL tagged posts on our social media throughout the month. You can follow along using #EngagedFamiliesFL on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. For Vroom Week posting on social media use #VroomWeekFL and tag @JoinVroom also.
