2.1 Respecting Each Other
- If you value and respect yourself, you will do the same to others.
- Professional relationships focus on respecting and valuing the
strengths, skills and knowledge of the people you work with and
recognising the contribution made by everyone in your setting.
- There should be open communication to ensure that everyone's views
are listened to and considered fairly, always keeping the needs of the
children firmly in mind.
- Professional relationships are based on friendliness towards parents, but not necessarily friendship with parents.
