In the early childhood field, we recognize that parents are a child’s first and best teacher. And knowing that solutions created with parents instead of for parents are much more likely to meet their needs, we launched the Parent Innovation Institute in the Fruitvale neighborhood of Oakland, California in 2017.
The program kicked off with four family-serving organizations, bringing their staff together with the parents they serve to co-create early childhood solutions.
Take a look at the video below to see how participants, programs and services, and the local early childhood community have transformed.
