This is the most interesting, comprehensive, and practical educator resource available today for working with families.

HOME, SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY RELATIONS is a core course in an Early Childhood Education curriculum. Sometimes called Child, Family, and Community, the course includes coverage of: children's learning and behavior viewpoints, and how they are affected by family members of the immediate and larger community; evolution of the role played by home, school, and community on the child's life; the demographics and the diverse nature of families in the U.S. today; features of the community; and parent involvement. Annual enrollments in the course and current Cengage market share. Include both total enrollment and percentage of market targeted to determine true potential market share. (Include source of estimate.) Over 120,000 students enroll in early childhood education annually. The early childhood education two-year market size consists of approximately 80,000 students obtaining an AA degree or AS degree in ECE from one of the 687 early childhood education programs. ECE four-year programs consist of approximately 40,000 students obtaining a bachelor degree from one of the 884 four-year programs. Due to the increasing demands for quality child care providers, enrollments for early childhood education continue to increase.
