Family day care as a professional service focuses on providing an excellent experience for children. More people now are appreciating that to give children an excellent experience, carers need to have a good relationship with parents that involves lots of two-way communication.
Carer-parent communication cannot be thought of as an 'add-on'. It cannot be looked at separately from the other parts of the operation of a family day care home or the operation of a whole scheme. Good communication is not an additional thing to find the time to do, rather it is a way of doing things.
