Terms of Use ▼

HFRP Interact is a dynamic platform that we use to communicate with those passionate about promoting children’s learning through family engagement, early childhood education, afterschool programs, digital media, and home-school partnerships. Through a range of interactive events such as web chats, web conferences, and discussion boards that often relate to our tools and materials, participants learn about promising practices from each other and special guests. These platforms permit all participants to share innovative ways to connect children’s learning opportunities in the home, school, and community.
