Abstract

Family- Professional collaboration (FPC) has been identified to have a positive outcome on multiple aspects of the child’s development. Different countries define FPC from different perspectives. The early years foundation stage (EYFS) statutory framework (2021) sets the standards for this work in the UK. This sociocultural-oriented research is largely influenced by the latest research connected to family professional collaboration. The aim of this chapter is to take a closer look at how, on practice level, teachers describe in one nursery their implementation of FPC as well as with children with special educational needs (SEN). In this study we engage with a single case study. This case study is in this research used to generate an in-depth understanding of what type of practices are implemented in a preschool context, in practice. According to the results there were multiple barriers for a successful FPC.
