This book explores the ways in which Early Years practitioners work with parents and families to enhance children’s development, learning and well-being. It explores the need for close partnership working between staff and families, offers examples of good practice and encourages reflection and discussion of the issues involved. The book pays particular attention to the standards required to gain Early Years Professional Status but is of interest to anybody working in an Early Years setting or studying on Early Childhood courses.
