Parents and carers are the most important people and role models within children lives, however majority of parents have no choice but to work and that’s where our role of early years’ practitioners falls into place.

A town such as this one is hard to find.

Uprooting a family and moving them to a whole new area can be difficult, especially on children. Which is why, being an active member in a community is so important; it helps create a sense of stability. A theory that supports this idea, of one’s environment influencing the dynamics of a family, is the family ecological theory.
