As children’s first and most intimate teachers, parents hold a wealth of knowledge about their children. When we accept an enrolment in our service, we are accepting a huge responsibility as parents trust us to care and teach their children. How can we best honour that trust, and build respectful, strong and inclusive partnerships with our families? How do we communicate effectively and make sure that our centres are culturally safe and welcoming for all families?
