Intended for: Community Crèches, Parent Groups, Childcare Advisors
The tools can help these groups address problems and move forward in positive ways with services and practice. They are particularly suited to less experienced workers, helping bring out important discussions about challenging situations, building confidence and encouraging creative thinking.

- In team development sessions to support and address working with other professionals, staff, Teenagers and hard to reach families, challenging ‘the norm’ and giving an equal voice to all participants through use of the tools to share their creative ideas and experiences.
