It is All About Relationships. Working with Families and other Professionals

October 7, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Our working relationships with parents and community professionals can be linked to a wide range of benefits for children. This workshop will explore the foundations for effective working relationships with families and other professionals in childcare settings. We will explore practical ways of moving childcare providers towards services that are more closely aligned with collaborating with parents and community partners. The importance of, and strategies for, collaborative communication, treating others with dignity and respect, and honoring their values and choices are also presented.
