5 WAYS TO BUILD STRONGER LINKS BETWEEN HOME AND CHILD CARE SERVICES

Children benefit when their routines and experiences at home and in early education and care services are supportive of one another.

1

Communicate to staff any health issues,
likes/ dislikes or new skills your child is developing.

2

Share information with staff about your child’s daily routine
e.g. sleeping/eating routines, toileting.

3

Have in place consistent behaviour guidance strategies
to help your child to understand limits.

 

4

Help your child to understand the routines at the service
e.g. talk to your child about or practise sitting in a chair for meals
and snacks if your child is developmentally ready.


5

Ask the staff about your child’s daily
experiences, what they’ve learnt and any issues.
