Research at all levels of education highlights the fact that flourishing relationships are at the core of effective teaching and learning, and thriving communities. They are also fundamental to mental and emotional wellbeing. How relationships are addressed in the early years is going to greatly influence children at each stage of their development. The relational dimension needs to be conceptualised not only at the level of the teacher and student but also with all those who play a part in a child’s development – directors of education and care services, parents, grandparents, and the wider community.
