EYPs work in partnership with families and professionals in order to safeguard the child and maintain their health and safety at all times. It is important for EYPs to develop professional relationships with parents/carers while the child is in their care; EYPs must organise times to communicate with the parents/carers about the child’s development or any concerns they may have. It can sometimes be difficult for EYPs to communicate with the child’s main primary caregiver as there may be barriers such as: work timings, language barriers and busy times at nursery.
