It's Summer Time!

The six week break over the summer seems like an eternity for any young child.  It is crucial that children have the opportunity to recharge their batteries during this time, having lots of downtime and long sleeps.  However, it is also a very long stretch of time away from pre-school or school and parents should be conscious of this to ensure learnt skills are not lost over the summer months.  No, I don’t mean making your child sit down and do formal reading, writing and numbers every day! Far from it...Instead maximise learning opportunities to fit in with wherever you are or whatever you may be doing.  The trick with 3-5 year olds is if it’s done right they will just believe you are playing a fun game or doing an exciting activity or sharing some special time together!

It's all in the talk

I cannot stress more the critical role that talk plays throughout every element of a child’s learning journey.  If a child can speak and communicate effectively, has an ever-increasing repertoire of vocabulary to draw upon and has fun with playing with and listening to words and rhymes he will have begun his access to the world.
