Keep on Talking

 

Our Keep on Talking project helps promote children's speech and language development.  It involves working with parents to ensure positive outcomes for the children and we have a notice board with useful tips on display outside the play room.  Mr Bear our pre-school mascot allows children the opportunity to share experiences of their home life through adventures recorded on camera and in a diary.  Children are able to voice their views and opinions in our weekly Little Trees committee where they are encouraged to participate in the running of their pre-school.  Children gain confidence through familiarity and so stories and rhymes are repeated over a half term period.  We work closely with speech therapists to ensure effective and consistent strategies are in place for children with speech and language difficulties.  Please click the link below for more information on the Early Years curriculum.


We are part of the Early Talk Boost scheme and we deliver this to groups of children who require that little boost in their communication needs. To support our children's emotional needs we have set up a nurture group.
