Early Literacy

Infant with parent


Talking with children is one of the best ways to help them learn new words and information.

  • Talk about what you and your child are seeing and doing wherever you are – at home, on walks in your neighborhood, at the supermarket, in the car. Encourage their talking.  “I see something brown – the trunk of that tree.  What do you see that is green?”

  • Stretch your child’s vocabulary.  Repeat what your child says and use new words.  “You want a banana?  Yum, bananas are so delicious!”

  • If English isn’t your first language, speak to your child in the language you know best.
