Speech, language and communication skills are a key factor of your child’s development. Children need to be able to communicate their needs, verbally or through body language. Creating a vocabulary rich environment for children enables them to thrive at nursery and at home.

At Little Steps Day Care we believe that it is important we provide children with the essential skills they need to progress in the world. For more information, call us on 01234 889518.

Play Time

When children play with other children, they learn how to communicate effectively. They learn how to problem solve and develop a whole range of skills, which leads to making real friendships. Play has a huge impact on speech development as they learn what to say to communicate their wants or needs. Additionally, it enables children to learn from each other.

Being spoken to and communicating with other people during playtime also helps to develop an understanding of communication through body language.

Wind Down With Quiet Time

A full day of nursery can be overwhelming. It is full of activities and learning and sometimes quiet time is needed. Winding down is important as it gives your child a chance to relax and take a step back from their busy day.

Planning quiet time avoids tears and tantrums as children cannot tell when they need a rest.

Boosts Confidence

A nursery is great for boosting your child’s confidence as it encourages self-reliance. When a child can finally manage a task on their own, it encourages a ‘can-do’ attitude and reduces frustration.

Verbal Communication

When we communicate with children, it should be positive and encouraging. This is important as it can impact a child’s own communication development.

Verbal communication should be encouraged through the introduction of new vocabulary and positive language. It helps to build self-esteem and a positive sense of self.
