The ‘Time to Talk’ strategy highlights 5 main elements to good communication. They are:
o Being face to face
o Speaking slowly
o Keeping it simple
o Joining in
Bearing these elements in mind we have produced ‘Chatter Bags’ throughout the nursery for parents to share with their children that encourage good communication. These packs are also used within the nursery with the children and their key workers for focus group times. They contain familiar story books, recognisable props and board games. Also included are simple, step-by-step instructions to obtain the best results.
