This is the short companion volume to "Early Home Learning Matters: A good practice guide" by Kim Roberts
This brief guide provides an overview of the key messages for practitioners contained in "Early Home Learning Matters: A good practice guide". This is an essential resource for anyone working with parents of children from birth to five years of age, or developing early years services. The link between social deprivation and poor outcomes for children is well established but, crucially, it is not set in stone. What the evidence also tells us is that when parents provide the experiences that children need for their early development, this has a huge and lasting impact on their future wellbeing and achievement, irrespective of their parents, of material or educational background. Involving and supporting parents by working in partnership is therefore an essential part of early years services.
