Daily routines and experiences such as diapering or playing with toys offer opportunities to build positive relationships with young children that foster trust and security while promoting rich language development. In this session, participants will explore strategies that they can use every day to create a language-rich environment, which helps children build language and literacy skills such as developing vocabulary, hearing the different sounds and rhythms of language, enjoying stories and books, and exploring writing.

At the end of this session the participant will be able to:
  • Explain why it is important to create a language-rich environment in the first 3 years of life.
  • Describe strategies for intentionally supporting the development of receptive and expressive language skills.
Intended audience: EHS, QTL
