What will you learn?
Research tells us that a child’s language development at the age of 2 years can predict children’s performance on entry to primary school and their future educational success.
The earliest years are crucial for a child’s future achievement and it is incredibly important that early years practitioners have the skills and knowledge to support and develop each individual child’s communication and language skills. This is particularly important for children that come from disadvantaged backgrounds.
NDNA’s online course will help practitioners to create a nursery environment that is effective for developing language and vocabulary. It is designed to give practitioners the ability to support children’s vocabulary and early language skills.
