Early childhood learning programs thrive when the adults– parents, teachers, and administrators– communicate well. Of course, as a professional, you probably already know a LOT about great parent communication. This webiner will help you apply what you know using digital strategies.
Effective online communication strategies can help establish your program’s brand and image in your community before families even enroll. In fact, online communication tools are critical for getting parents to find your program. The Internet has never played a more important role in early education. After all, if they can’t find your program how can parents become engaged? Now that we are deep into the 21st Century, parents use the Internet to find and investigate early learning programs. And, once they are enrolled in your program, you must use strategies that come naturally to parent who are accustomed to using technology for almost every aspect of their daily lives.
This webinar will help you understand how to use digital communication strategies including social media and online tools to:
– Engage parents before they enroll, while they are enrolled, and after they leave your program;
– How online tools can help you build strong relationships and enhance parent engagement;
