This can happen only if parents and educators work together to encourage desired behaviors from pre-school-aged children in both the pre-school and the home setting. The first thing that needs to be looked at to understand a child’s development is attachment. Attachment is a lasting emotional relationship that begins at birth and is a lifelong process. The first attachment a child has sets the tone for development as well as provides the basis of all future relationships (Gonzalez-Mena, 2009). Attachment gives infants a sense of well-being which happens when an adult responds sensitively and appropriately to a baby’s needs.

Fitzgerald (2004) stated that “partnerships within early years settings are about reciprocal relationships: the influence that the family has on the setting and the influence of the setting on the family”. Parent partnership has several key features, one of which is that practitioners know the needs of the child. Practitioners need to know how the child is and how their needs are so they can fulfil them to the best of their ability. In Early Years settings daily sheets are filled out to inform parents about their child’s progress throughout the day, practitioners then feedback to parents about the child’s overall day.
