Communication affects relationships within the setting in a variety of ways. The positive affects are you will have a better relationship with the children as this will help with their learning and development because they will be talking to you about what they like/dislike and their interests. They will feel at ease with you and more trusting and may be more likely to confide in you. They will feel happier and important. You can keep parents/carers informed about any upcoming events, keep them updated on their child’s progress, be aware of any problems or concerns which could give you the opportunity to nip them in the bud before they potentially become bigger.
