Family Engagement and Support

My Goodnight Bag is a bedtime routine kit developed by LEARN with funding from CHSSN and in collaboration with community partners. My Goodnight Bag is a project developed to support a school community’s family engagement and support strategy. 

The goal at the provincial level is to mobilize the formation of strong partnerships at the local sites and offer capacity-building training to schools and their partner organizations to respond to the needs of families with preschool-aged children. 

At the local level, CDAs and their partners collaborate to offer a workshop for families with children aged 3 to 5 on healthy bedtime routines with the aim of providing support for families in early transitions and school readiness.

Families who attend a healthy bedtime routine workshop and participate in scheduled activities (in-person or online) receive My Goodnight Bag kits.

In order to receive the complete Goodnight Bag kit, schools must meet the following criteria:

- Be a CLC school with access to a CDA who can coordinate the project.

- Collaborate and co-plan the project with at least two of the following: Local NPI/CIUSSS;  Local literacy group; School board transition agent; Local organization that provide services to families of children 3 to 5 years old.

- Submit a signed partnership/service agreement with  a local community organization (for animation of activity) to LEARN.

- Host a workshop (at school/in the community/online) for families with children aged 3 to 5 animated by a trained facilitator.
