Communication, Language and Literacy Development

 

In order to support the children’s development in Communication language and literacy we plan an environment that is rich in signs, symbols, notices, numbers, words, rhymes music and songs and we provide lots of relaxed time for sustained conversation between adults and children, both in small groups and individually. We ensure that children have time to initiate conversations and we respect their thinking time and silences. Many of our children are learning English as an additional language and we respect and value this, developing the children’s awareness of different languages and different scripts.
