Partnership with Parents in Early Childhood Settings examines how practitioners can work effectively with parents and families, acknowledging the complex nature of these relationships. Drawing on policy, research and practice from kindergartens and early years settings in five European countries, it provides insight into how political, social and cultural contexts affect the relationships between educators and families and the impact this has on children’s early experiences. The book is based upon learning from an Erasmus mobility project between educators from five countries in OMEP (the World Organisation for Early Childhood Education). It presents examples from practice and research from the different countries and highlights some positive and practical ways in which professionals can work with parents, as well as potential barriers to parental partnership and how these might be overcome. Each section focuses on a different country and allows for a detailed exploration into how relationships are developed and sustained for the benefit of young children and their families in different places. Throughout, the reader is encouraged to reflect on their current understanding of parental partnership and how they can plan for positive parental partnership working in the future. This thought-provoking text will be an indispensable resource for students of early childhood and teachers and practitioners, as well as academics and those with an interest in early years social and educational policy.

Families experience several challenges in parenting a child with special needs. Forming a partnership that fosters collaboration and communication with education professionals should not be one of these challenges. However, research has revealed that many teachers are not provided with appropriate training and opportunities for professional development on how to build a partnership with parents is uncommon. The objective of a partnership between the parent and teacher is to share information and contribute to the common goal of meeting the needs of the child. This project explores the recent history of partnerships between the home and school and parental involvement in the student learning process as well as potential barriers to this process. This project also provides strategies for teachers to build effective partnerships with parents. An important factor of a teacher to communicating effectively includes recognizing various religious, socioeconomic, racial, and family backgrounds and being empathetic to cultural differences. In order to understand the different preferences and dynamics of a family, a teacher needs to build rapport. A classroom handbook, survey/questionnaire, family night, and effective daily communication system provides teachers with strategies to communicate and collaborate with families. Additionally, these resources assist teachers in building rapport with parents that will serve to create a partnership between home and school.
