Partnerships: Families and Communities in Early Childhood, Sixth Canadian Edition, is designed to encourage the development of authentic, meaningful, and respectful relationships with families. With a strong emphasis on working in early learning centres and school environments, this resource provides strategies for building positive relationships between parents and teachers. Through engaging features such as Inside Look boxes, updated statistics from the 2016 census, and in-depth discussions around the increasing diversity of Canadian society and the education system, students develop a strong base to build meaningful and active relationships with both the children and family members once they are in the real world of childcare centres.
