- childcare policies, focusing on the characteristics of childcare services;

- identifies new needs and new questions that arise in contemporary family contexts, to rethink the educational, theoretical and methodological coordinates that best support the parenting task;- knows the main models of educational services-family relationships;

- it hypothesizes strategies to establish a cooperative relationship between educators and parents.
