Children live in families. The children you work with live part of their lives in childcare, too. They need caring and sensitive adults in their lives. Parents are usually the first people a child learns to trust. Parents and families are the most important people in children’s lives. As a childcare provider, you are important, too. If children have strong and supportive families, they probably will have a strong relationship with you as well.
you ever wondered….
It is important for providers to be aware of the different types of relationships that parents and children can have. Then you may be able to help parents who seem to be having problems with their child.
This purpose of this section is to help providers understand the many kinds of family-child relationships. We believe that you can help build healthy relationships between the children in your care and their families.
