    Module 8: Relationships with Families and Community

    Children come to us from diverse families and communities, and we want them to feel welcomed, comfortable, and understood. How can we welcome and collaborate with all families so that everyone is included in our settings? What does it mean to develop authentic relationships? Do parents have a place in decision-making within our settings? How do we build relationships and collaborations with our cities and towns and how does this benefit all of us?

    In this module, we will hear from educators who have developed, through varied approaches, strong and respectful relationships with families and communities.

    Participants will:

    • Examine the idea of ‘relationship building’ and what this looks like in practice
    • Share ‘what has worked’ in terms of authentic collaborations
    • Understand the journey of building relationships over time, and the benefits of taking the time to do this: The development of trust, understanding of each others’ viewpoints, collaboration in terms of programme development.
    • Consider the ‘Image of the Parent’ and its impact.

    This module is being hosted by NSCC Burridge Early Childhood Development Support Centre

    This is a 2 evening Online Session on  December 2 6:30-8:30 & December 9 6:30-8:30
