Thinking about how I work with other professionals


Throughout this course, you have been thinking about your personal views on working with others. We have seen that working with parents and other professionals is an important area underpinning practice in early years settings. In the ideal setting, the sharing of skills and information, and the collaborative approach to supporting children's learning, fosters a positive learning environment in which all adults, including parents, work together for the benefit of the children in their care. However, you will have noticed that rhetoric does not always match reality.
