As family child care providers we are often the parents first line of information about child development,behaviours, and community resources. As well, we are sometimes a sounding board for the stresses they feel in their lives. In this workshop we will look at who are the parents of the children we care for, how we get to know them and the power of good old fashioned conversation. Through understanding of culture we will be better able to work with each child and their families. We will also look at how to maintain your professionalism from the time you have first contact on the telephone to the final day of attendance of the child at your centre.
