Key Person Approach


What is a Key Person Approach?

A Key Person approach is used in many early childhood settings to help children to form secure attachments and build close relationships with a Key Person.

Using this approach means each child is assigned a named person who is primarily responsible for creating a close relationship with the baby, toddler or young child and his/her family.
