OUR STAFF PICNIC
Al Mamzar Park - Dubai
Talking with babies and children from birth is important because it builds children’s language and communication skills. These are important skills for life. Talking with children doesn’t have to be a big deal – just chatting about everyday things is a great start.Talking with babies or toddlers can help his language and communication development. The more we talk with babies or toddlers, the better. And it’s not just about better language skills. Talking with babies helps their brains develop and can help children do better at school when they’re older.
OUR PLAYGROUP I
Language development includes learning to use words and sentences. At around 12 months, your child will start using words to communicate with you. His babble will start turning into real words. Your child might also enjoy saying the same word over and over. Your child will begin to put two words together as she nears two years – for example, ‘mummy car’, ‘me go’ or ‘sock foot’. Words like ‘the’ and ‘is’ will be missing in these two-word sentences. She’ll use only a few descriptive words at this age – for example, ‘big’, ‘red’ or ‘sunny’. Her word combinations will consist mainly of nouns and some verbs (‘dog eat’, ‘car go’).
OUR PLAYGROUP II
Language development includes your child understanding more and more of what’s said to her and how it’s said.
Your child will understand one-step and two-step instructions, as long as they’re about things he already knows – for example, ‘Pick up your toys and put them in the box’ or ‘Come over here and have some apple’. He might still find it hard to follow instructions about unfamiliar objects or tasks. Your child will begin to answer questions from adults about ‘who’, ‘what’ and ‘where’, but she might not yet understand how to answer ‘why’ and ‘how’ questions. Your child can tell from the tone of your voice if you’re happy, affectionate or angry. If your child is struggling to do something, he knows how to ask for your help. And your child will understand household routines and guess what’s going to happen next in a routine. For example, if you tell her to put her boots on, she knows she’s going to the park.
OUR FOUNDATION YEARS
When your child doesn’t understand what you say, she might ask you to explain or ask you what specific words mean.
Your child will understand instructions that have more than two steps, as long as they’re about familiar things – for example, ‘Turn off the TV, put on your pyjamas and get into bed’ or ‘When I open the gate, take my hand, then we’ll walk down to the corner’. Also, your child will understand questions most of the time, especially if they’re about something that’s happening right now, or that he can see. He’ll understand slightly complicated explanations, as long as he can see the results himself. For example, he’ll understand an explanation like ‘When the sun shines on things, it makes them hot. Feel how warm the water in the dog’s bowl is from being in the sun’. By four, your child might be able to understand and use words to express emotions like ‘happy’, ‘sad’, ‘mad’ or ‘surprised’.
