Project description

Parent support in early childhood education provisions is not often the subject of research and research into parent support is very often driven by a residual and individualizing perspective. In this study we use a model to analyse interactions among parents and between parents and professionals. By combining observations and interviews with parents and professionals we will explain how supporting interactions work and how they are influenced by early childhood politices.
