Abstract

This research project will use the quantitative methodology approach to explore the impact communication has on different areas of a partnership.

This independent project was inspired to explore different communication methods used within the Early Years and the impact it will have upon the people involved within the partnership. It will mainly focus on the child, parents, and practitioners.

A questionnaire was created and distributed between Early Years professionals who have different qualifications, experiences and knowledge from across the UK.
The questionnaires collected the views on the specific questions based on the topics of partnership, communication, and professional burnout. The data was presented in various graphs and analysed in relation to the researched literature.

The research highlighted that having a strong partnership is important and essential for the child’s development. There are many different ways of communicating with, in more recent years, an increased use of technology as a method of communicating. However, there are many concerns about the emotional wellbeing of practitioners due to increased expectations placed upon them. These concerns have been raised and researched throughout the research project.
