Advantages of this course
The course looks at the importance of the two-way process that is a partnership with parents in childcare. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) stresses the importance of this partnership, which means not only giving information to the parents but asking for and listening to the parent’s views and knowledge.
Parents ‘are the child’s first and most enduring educators’ (to quote the EYFS), have a unique knowledge of their child, and are also a great potential resource for setting
The course also looks at how to deal with occasions where parents express a concern or raise a complaint about something that has made them unhappy. Communicating well with parents and managing complaints in such a way that they do not damage the partnership with parents is important.
Additional activities encourage you to reflect on your learning
There is also suggested extended reading that gives both practical information and links to websites to expand knowledge
