Partnership With Parents in Early Childhood Today

Edited by:

May 2023 | 200 pages | Learning Matters
What is the role of early childhood practice in understanding the needs of parents and carers today?
This book:
*Considers the perspectives of those parents/carers marginalised by current practice
*Provokes thinking about how settings can become more inclusive in their practice
*Supports students to challenge their own assumptions about parents

Each chapter considers a group of families that may be marginalised in practice. The book suggests respectful, co-productive ways for students and early childhood practitioners, across the sectors, to work together. Each chapter asks current and future practitioners to reflect on and challenge their current practice.
