Parents are the most important people in a child’s live. They are the first educators; they know their child better than anyone. By early years practitioners working with the parents together we can understand and met the child’s needs and learning. Working with parents in the early years is part of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), EYFS framework states that ‘Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up’ (HM Government 2017). Once you have established a positive and trusting relationship with parents you can begin to use your expertise to explain the importance of home learning and give them opportunities to become involved in their child’s learning. Practitioners have a crucial role to play in supporting parents to improve the quality of home learning by helping to remove barriers.
