Collaborating with Families to Inform Practice
Tuesday November 22, 2022 | 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
Relationships with families are key in being able to best support children and their families through a collaborative partnership. During this webinar, we explore how to engage with families to establish trusting and respectful relationships. We also explore communication and the barriers this can create in building these robust relationships with families. We acknowledge the parent as the expert of their child and how we can learn from families to provide the best possible care and learning opportunities for children through a collaborative partnership.

- Understand how communication can create barriers to a robust relationship with families.
- Understand the importance of parents as the experts of their child.
