A Paradigm Shift from the Idea of a Child Attending ECE and Towards the Goal of ECE Providers Supporting Every Family's System of Care

A NEW PROGRAMME TO SUPPORT EDUCATORS AND PARENTS TO CREATE SHARED CAREGIVING PARTNERSHIPS - SUPPORTING EVERY FAMILY'S SYSTEM OF CARE AROUND THEIR CHILD

Colorado, April, 2012  - Touchpoints is a nationally recognised approach developed by Dr Berry Brazelton, based on research and more than 60 years of listening to parents and children. Brazelton's Touchpoints is a way of understanding and participating in family development. 

Touchpoints in Early Care and Education represents a paradigm shift away from the idea of a child attending childcare, and towards the goal of childcare providers joining and supporting every family's system of care around their child. The Touchpoints Approach assists in the creation of these shared care-giving partnerships.

The Touchpoints programme is designed to: 

  • Expand your knowledge and skills in working with families, providers, and community partners
  • Further your learning in the use child development information within the context of your relationships with families, providers, and community partners to support the best possible developmental outcomes for children
  • Enhance your skills in reflective practice

This approach empowers parents to discover their effectiveness as parents, guiding them through their children's predictable crises (touchpoints) to support their children's self-esteem and readiness to take on the world.

The Early Childhood Council of Logan, Phillips and Sedgwick Counties recently offered a Touchpoints training programme to help parents be successful.
