10:00 am - 2:30 pm
This workshop will explore the Family Centered Practice (FCP) as a philosophical foundation for working with families in child care settings. Family Centered Practice is
a systematic way of creating a partnership with families, treating them with dignity and respect, honouring their values and choices and providing supports to enhance their functioning as family. FCP can be linked to a wide range of benefits for both children and families. We will also explore how reflective practice increases our understanding of our work, and its impact on children and their families.
SUITABLE FOR ALL EARLY LEARNING AND CHILD CARE PROFESSIONALS
