Strong relationships with families help to promote positive parent-child relationships and early learning environments and experiences for children.  This workshop equips professionals with the confidence and tools needed to genuinely partner with parents.

What does Engaging Families involve?

In this workshop professionals will:

  • explore the concept of parent engagement from the perspective of families who find it difficult to access early years services
  • explore different forms of engagement
