Assessment criteria: Analyse benefits of working in partnership with different parents/carers
Working in partnership with different parents and carers can bring a number of benefits to both the professional and the family.
It can help to develop a better understanding of the needs and interests of the child, as well as identify any potential problems that may need to be addressed.
By sharing information and developing a bond of mutual trust and respect, professionals can often achieve better outcomes for children. It can also help to maintain consistency between the home and Early Years settings.
In addition, working in partnership with parents can also help to identify the needs of a family and provide signposting or referral to appropriate services.
