We provide a language rich environment which encourages children to communicate through a range of stimulating play opportunities. Children are given time to express themselves and find their own voice through play, stories, rhymes and music. This is done both in free play and in small groups where children are encouraged to join in at their own level. Our library area is a quiet haven where children can go and sit quietly on their own, with their friends or with an adult. We plan for children to participate in meaningful speaking and listening activities where they can ask questions, negotiate, try out new words or descriptions.
