What teachers need to know about family-centered practice

A growing corpus of empirical and theoretical literature offers useful points of departure for the preparation of teachers on approaches to working with families of young children. In this chapter, we summarize key information on the contributions of families and parents to children's development in the early years and on the concept and dimensions of family-centered practices in programs of early education and care. We also review strategies for preparing teachers to implement family-centered practice in early childhood settings. (author abstract)
