Building trust with parents or carers will result in them knowing that the nursery is a very good place for their child as it offers a great amount of help and support, which is especially important for new parents or carers. Other professionals It is also important to partner with other professionals as they will offer the support and services, where needed, to improve the overall development of the child. For example, a speech and language therapist may assist a child with communication difficulties. Another example would be a play therapist to diagnose, prevent or resolve a child with psychosocial challenges. Multi-disciplinary teams It is very important that everyone in a multi disciplinary team work in partnership.

The statement is important because it protects children form mistreatment from CASHE students. Maslow’s hierarchy of individual needs prepare children for later in life by developing their personal, social and emotional skills. This supports children by allowing them to carry their skills through life enabling them to be successful in school and at work. This is important as is helps children to live as they want
Effective communication is also important so that information given is clear, concise, accurate, and informative. This decreases the possibility of errors being made. It is important to work as a team with other members of the setting, so that the child is getting the support the need and so that ever one is working to achieve the same results and goals. Within my own we use a range of methods to communicate with parents such as, monthly newsletters, class teachers hand-outs/diary informing parents what their child is doing each term, letters and posters. Having effective communication with the parents is important so that they know how their child is doing and what is happening at the nursery.
Understanding partnership working within the context of services for children and young people 1.1: Explain why working in partnership with others is important for children and young people Working in partnership is important as it helps give children the best start in life. This is done by encouraging and challenging the children with activities guided by the EYFS framework. Working in partnership ensures that everyone is working together and is communicates about the child and their needs, it also means that specialist advice can be given to support the child in everyday practice. Partnership will also support and improve communication of the child’s family. 1.2 Identify who relevant partners would be in own setting In own setting the relevant partners would be; other nurseries, parents and carers, information services, health visitors, children’s centres, speech and language therapists, social services, educational therapists and education and welfare officers, these all benefit the children differently but make sure that they’re getting a good start in life for example social services ensure that they are getting treated right at home and in nursery, social services will be called if there is suspected or confirmed abuse and the child will be take away from their parents and either put in a foster home or put up for adoption 1.3 Define the characteristics of effective partnership working There are many different characteristics of effective partnership working, one of these is making sure that confidentiality laws are followed correctly and information is only shared with the relevant people.
We need to check what we are saying and how we say things in moments of excitement or stress, so that the children understand our expectations and the boundaries of what is acceptable. Therefore it is important for us as adults and parents to demonstrate and model positive and effective communication skills in our dealings with others. 1.2. For us to communicate effectively, we need to be comfortable in one another’s company. This is called relationship building.
For such multidisciplinary teams to work effectively with commonly shared philosophy, values and ethos must be firmly established (Pugh 2006:147). The EYFS framework makes it clear that multi-agency working is imperative to daily practice. Working alongside professionals allows a deeper understanding of children providing them with better learning and care opportunities; this is particularly important for children with special educational needs. It is only through functioning together those working with children can provide a coherent service that generally meets the child’s and family needs (Effective practice: Multi-agency Working 2007). However for services to interlink with each other good relationships are key to success which generally takes time and resources to set up.
For example it might be helpful to be a nurturing parent, who is responsive and reliable, and work to create the space for a cooperative relationship. I would be accessible for them in terms of giving feedback, and even appropriate affect and disclosure. I try to be sensitive to their feelings and, if appropriate, to not hide my fallibility. I mirror to them feeling positive about being with them. “A primary task in psychotherapy and counselling is the creation of a secure base in the reliability and consistency of the therapeutic relationship.
The relationship with parents/carers is the first and most important relationship in a child’s life.They need to have a strong bond or attachment to their primary carers to feel loved and secure. Parents are a childs first teachers so they build the basis for the development. It is important that the child is praised for their actions and not criticised to help build their self esteem and self worth. It is important for children and young people to have friends as they learn social skills that will be important to them throughout their lives. These skills can be vital to maintaining social relationships and help them be able to resolve conflict.
Practitioners need to praise children and encourage them to succeed in their learning and give them the support they need. Practitioners need to build positive relationship with not only their key children and other children in their setting but also with the children’s parents this gives them a better chance of giving children more support at home. See appendix 1. At the setting parents can get involved and this will benefit planning for the child as parents know their children better than anyone and they will know their likes and dislikes and will be able to help them with their development. See appendix 2 .
