Cooperation with different stakeholders is one of the cornerstones of Finnish education. Co-operation in education is about partnerships: working towards the same goals together. Fruitful cooperation requires shared understanding, shared goals, and trust between the stakeholders.

The way adults collaborate in early childhood education has a huge impact on the learning and well-being of children. How do we build a partnership with families, promote their participation in early childhood education and care of their child and advance a healthy functional relationship? The process of collaboration requires many things, but most of all it demands the ECE personnel and the families to aim for the common goal: the child’s balanced growth and development, holistic learning, and well-being.
