Assessment criteria: 2.6 Give examples of support which may be offered to parents/carers

  • If you have identified that a parent or carer may need support, it is important that someone from your setting talk to them so that they can be offered help.
  • Some examples of support that an early years setting may offer to parents/carers include:
    • Providing advice and ideas about parenting and childcare
    • Making referrals or signposting to other agencies, such as the local authority for an Early Help Assessment and Plan (EHAP), local services or charities (e.g. GP, Citizens Advice Bureau) or national organisations
  • Sometimes parents and carers may just need someone to listen to them and offload their stresses and strains
