This booklet aims to present a 'picture' about parent-professional partnerships in a practical and relevant way that can support continuous improvement in family day care and centre based child care.
Included in this booklet is a brief discussion of areas to consider in parent-professional partnerships. Following the brief discussion are some key questions, strategies, and desirable outcomes to support reflection, self evaluation and continuous improvement.
The word 'some' is used over and over because this is not an exhaustive list. Each scheme or centre has to find its own way toward partnership.
Looking seriously at the level of partnership will lead to many more questions, strategies, and outcomes than are mentioned here.
