It is widely acknowledged that if parents are involved in their child’s early learning there is a positive impact on development and later school achievement. This book looks at how to build a positive relationship with the parents and carers of children in your program, whether you are working in a centre based or family day care setting. It offers practical advice on:

  • what the EYLF expects of educators
  • how to encourage parental involvement
  • how to include fathers as well as mothers
  • working with hard-to-reach parents
  • how to connect and communicate with diverse families

Each chapter includes:

  • case studies of how different settings have fostered better relationships
  • pointers for reflecting on you own practice
  • further food for thought
