The Family and Child Education (FACE) program was created in 1990 by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (now the Bureau of Indian Education) within the Office of Indian Education Programs to develop an integrated model for an American Indian early childhood/parental involvement program. The program was designed to serve
• children (from birth to age 5) and their parents by providing early childhood and adult education — including academic and parenting services — at home and in center-based settings; and,
• children in grades K-3, providing opportunities for active learning. This website forms the professional learning community for the center-based staff for the Family and Child Education (FACE) program funded by the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE). It is maintained and supported by the National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) as a technical assistance tool for FACE staff.
NCFL holds the contract with the BIE to provide professional development in the form of training and technical assistance (online and onsite) for preschool education (three-and-four-year old children), parent engagement and adult education (GED, ABE, etc.) for the FACE program.
