The module includes video interviews with educators from three service types:

Whichever part of the children’s education and care sector you work in, this module will provide helpful information, ideas and opportunities for reflection.

The module will provide you with an understanding of:

  • what is desirable in relationships between educators and families
  • how each educator-family relationship is unique
  • why the child’s wellbeing is the focus of the relationship
  • how different service types approach partnerships with families.

Suitable for early childhood education and care professionals at all stages of their careers.
