This Research in Practice Series title describes:
- what the words ‘community’ and ‘partnership’ mean and how to apply these in the early learning context
- how educators can find out who is part of their local community
- how theory can support strong community connections.
It uses case studies and tips from practitioners to demonstrate examples of community partnerships and the value they hold. Through each of these examples and scenarios, educators will be able to see not only the challenges that working this way might present but also the infinite possibilities of thinking beyond their immediate boundaries. Each chapter includes practice considerations with a range of provocations for staff teams, as well as practical strategies to implement these ideas.
