Early Childhood Key Worker
At Create A Sense of Place, our Key Workers work with Family members and professionals, to work together as a collaborative, integrated, coordinated team with the common goal of facilitating participation of a child and family in everyday community environments.
Key Workers focus on the child’s natural learning environments using the child’s daily routines and activities to promote the child’s development and participation, rather than in a clinical setting.
Our Key Worker Approach
Create A Sense of Place is dedicated to collaboration, both internally within CASoP, and externally with other professionals, working together with the family and child to get the best outcome possible.
We will promote teamwork and collaboration by providing services that are:
Collaborative Teamwork Practice: working together with the family and other professionals to build a collaborative and integrated team around the child, communicating and sharing information, knowledge and skills, with one team member nominated as a key worker and main person working with the family.
Capacity-Building Practice: building the capacity of the child, family, professionals and community through coaching and collaborative team work. The goal is to build the knowledge, skills and abilities of the individuals who will spend the most time with the child in order to have as great an impact as possible on the child’s learning and development.Create A Sense of Place sees the value and importance of a Key Worker and uses aspects of different approaches in our service delivery.
