About the course

As a parent, taking your child to nursery, pre-school or a local childminder can be a difficult task and they can face certain conflict in their minds regarding it.However, for many parents, extra childcare providers are a necessity. Parents need to trust the childcare providers, and a healthy partnership needs to be established if it's going to work well for all involved.

This course highlights the importance of partnership with parents, and you can probably agree with their statement that parents are the child's 'first and most enduring educators'. With the help of this course, early year's practitioners can learn how to engage with parents to ensure a happy partnership for both parties. A partnership is a two-way process; parents need to be encouraged to share information and feedback, as practitioners should as a matter of course.

Opinions and voices matter and parental involvement is important to every childcare setting - even if they can't be there as much as they'd like to be. As practitioners, or training practitioners, you need to embrace diversity and help to provide a collaborative environment so that children can shine and parents can trust in your services. Through completion of this course, you will learn some of the fundamental elements needed to ensure minimum standards are maintained and exceeded, and that partnerships with parents can flourish.
