Parents are the Prime Influence on Child Learning

Our position is that policy and ECE services must recognise and support parents as first teachers.  What matters for children's learning outcomes is not just what happens when the child is at the service, but importantly what impact this has on the child at home. Therefore we must support parent participation in their child's learning. We must also build and maintain strong connections between the ECE and home settings.
