EUB204 Building Partnerships with Families and Communities

Teaching and learning is enhanced when early childhood teachers build respectful and supportive relationships and work in partnership with families. This includes undertaking professional learning to enhance these skills. This unit promotes knowledge and understandings about the diversity, complexity and changing nature of contemporary childhoods, families and communities. Undertaken in the second year of your course, you will be able  to reflect on your experiences of working with children, families and communities in line with ACECQA requirements and the Australian Professional Standards. You will understand your professional responsibilities and need for professional learning to develop your skills to engage in active communication, consultation and collaboration with families for effective partnerships and to develop links with other child and family services.
