Previous webinar: Re-establishing the foundations of early years: Welcome back parents
Aired: Thursday March 25 18.00- 19.00
Through the pandemic early years providers have worked tirelessly to maintain the positive relationships with parents that are vital to children’s learning and development.
There are many inspiring examples of ways in which providers maintained communication between a child’s home and the setting. Many of these new approaches, such as effective use of technology to engage with busy parents, will no doubt continue beyond the pandemic .
The 'opening up' phase has rightly focused on the needs of children as they settle back into the routine of early years. However it is also essential that we reconnect with parents and uphold the EYFS principles of positive relationships and enabling environments to support children's learning.
Please join Melanie Pilcher and Michael Freeston to reflect on the impact of the pandemic on parents as their child's 'first and most enduring educator' and explore what our priorities for parental engagement should look like now and in the coming months.
This session will also provide an update on the latest policy developments affecting the sector. Please contribute your views and experiences as part of our always lively and informative debate.
Our previous webinars are available on our YouTube channel.
