Building positive relationships with families and communities
Chapter 19 focuses on research evidence about the importance of families and communities in relation to children’s learning. Questions raised in this chapter ask: What has been learned from major longitudinal studies? For example, studies conducted by the Australian Institute of Family Studies over the last decade, for example, the Growing up in Australia study, and what the implications for early childhood educators and professionals are. Evidence-informed understandings about building positive relationships with families and communities is shared.
