Extracts from this document...


How effective communication supports all areas of development. The setting can effectively support the child through good communication. Good communication is central to working with children, young people, their families and carers.

The parent and practitioner would have to discuss the child diet e.g. no pork for Jewish people. They should be well informed of the things related to the child in school and outside school on both sides of the equation.
