2.1. What is a partnership and why is it important for providers and families?
   A partnership is an openly communicating relationship between two parties with a common interest, though differing roles, pertaining to the well being of the child.  The reason it is so important is because the child needs to have reliable relationships in their lives so they are able to establish trust in their caregivers and have a stable emotional foundation in their educational experience. 

2.2 Why do families and child care providers conflict with one another at times?
  Families and child care providers conflict with one another at times because of different ideas they may have about the well being of the child.  They may conflict over parenting or teaching styles.  They may have conflicts because of issues with communication or a lack of understanding of the families situation.  

2.3 How can you take the lead in creating positive provider-family relationships?
  I can take the lead in creating positive provider-family relationships by asking the family to fill out a series of questions related to their child's development thus far.  I would also have a meet and greet session to get to know the family interaction alongside the child's temperament with their family present.  I would also make sure to clearly state my teaching philosophy, classroom expectations and my curriculum based goals for the child so that if there are any questions or concerns they have we can clearly communicate the points of interest we need to explore.  I would make sure to provide alternative options if possible in order for the child to reach their developmental potential.

2.1 Partenership is a realtionship between two parties working towards a common goal or with a specific interest in mind. In this case, a partnership bewteen families and caregiver would be a communicating and trusting realtionship working towards the best development of the child. It is important because when parents and caregivers can work together, it helps the development of the child become stimulated in both the calssroom and at home. They can work towards the common goal of creating the best environments and challenging the child to learn, meeting milestones or tackling set backs together.

2.2 There is conflict between families and care givers for a couple reasons. The main one is that there may be different views on what is best for the child. Whether it’s cultural, religious or family values that different from the objective views of a teacher. Another reason is that families are more subjective while caregivers are to be more objective. We as caregivers are taught to observe and report, where parents can become more concerned about the feelings and well being of emotions above what’s being observed.

2.3 Most importantly would be by building a trusting realtionship with parents. Once you have that, always ask questions, learning more about the child’s home life, what the parents need support in and how you can use your skills or knowledge to help them. Remembering to communicate clearly, answering questions honestly and having compassion/empathy in hard conversations. At the end of the day, the childs well being is most important and so remembering what your common goal is and moving towards that.

2.1 A partnership implies reciprocal sharing and consideration. Parents and caregivers much share what they observe in the the child's development and well-being, so that each party has a good understanding of the child. Furthermore, families and caregivers need to listen to eachother in terms of what is best of the child's development and well-being, as both parties have information that is valuable. 

2.2 A family may not always feel that a care facility is doing enough to personalize their service to their child's unique needs. Parents also probably don't appreciate when care givers make suggestions for how to best support their children. 

2.3 You can take lead in creating positive provider-family relationships if you make an effort to get to know a parent and develop a friendly relationship from the get-go. It is also so important to always respect the parents ideas and knowledge. They know their kid very well! Having regular meetings could also improve this relationship.

2.1) a partnership is between childcare providers and families for the mutual goal of the healthy and happy development of a child. Developing a strong and productive relationship with a childs family will produce better outcomes for the child sinc eboth sides of the partnership will be recieving more and detailed info about the child than they would have if they did not have a strong connection.

2.2) While both a family and a childcare provider have the best interest of the child at heart, they may not always see eye to eye when it comes to the kind of childcare that chidl recieves. Any disagreement about how the childcare is provided may lead to a conflict in their partnership.

2.3) The best thing you can do to create a positive family-provider relationship is to have a consistant open and honest stream of communication between you and the family. The family more than likely knows what they want for their child, so having an ongoing discussion about how you are providing that education and what you will do in the future to continue providing it is a great way to stay on the same page.

2.4) having a regular schedule would be beneficial for kids who have trouble with transition since they know how their day will progress. If they know how the day will progress, they know that someone will be there to pick them up once the day is over.

If you create a welcoming and inviting environment for your parents you can work together to build a relationship by having conversations to get to know each other.
