This book is written for all students of the Early Years.

It begins by examining the role of a parent in a child's life and the importance of good working relationships between parents and Early Years practitioners.

It goes on to discuss the preconceptions and assumptions that we all have about families and parents and considers the practical implications of working with parents in a respectful and trusting partnership.

It explores both interpersonal and communication skills and the formal and informal ways of involving parents in the early years experience of their children.
