Read the scenario, and then answer the question.
Scenario: Lilly is a 4-year-old in a Head Start program. She lives with her mother, who works two jobs to provide for the family, and Lilly often
spends extended hours at her Head Start. Lilly has a 2-year-old cousin in the program as well and spends some nights with her aunt and uncle
when her mother works an overnight shift. Lilly’s Head Start teacher, Marya, is concerned about preparing Lilly to enter kindergarten in a year
and encourages her family to spend extra time reading aloud to Lilly to help build family literacy. Marya is also focusing on preventative health
issues like hand washing, tooth brushing, and safety with Lilly’s class. Lilly’s Head Start is partnered with a local medical school to provide health
services for children and families. Marya provides all the families in her class with information about how to utilize the medical resources to
receive regular pediatric check-ups and screenings for children in the program.
In a 2- to 3-paragraph response, describe at least two important relationships among early childhood professionals in the setting. Explain how
