This chapter considers the importance of Early Years (EY) practitioners working collaboratively with other professionals to support the child and family within a multi –professional context. Bronfenbrenner’s ecological model of human development, which provides a theoretical framework for the subject of multi-professional working and relevant policy initiatives are explored to help explain the significance of collaborative work in EY practice. Work within multi-professional teams can be complex; the chapter considers how potential barriers to effective collaborative work can be managed and case studies provide some examples of multi-professional working within EY settings.
