Showing how early years practitioners can collaborate effectively with parents, the book includes case studies of parents and children who have attended the centre, and charts developments in learning for both children and parents.

Cath Arnold will be discussing key ideas from Involving Parents in their Children’s Learning in the SAGE Early Years Masterclass, a free professional development experience hosted by Kathy Brodie.
