Let’s Talk with Under Fives, Elklan Level 1
The EAS Foundation Phase team is offering training to practitioners in non-maintained settings who wish to improve their knowledge and skills relating to early language development. As language is a key determiner of later educational success, supporting early language learning will ensure that all children, regardless of home experience, will become confident capable communicators.

This 3 day course offers opportunities to reflect and engage in language development ~ both typical development and that which is not typical. Sessions are theoretical and practical and will involve participants reflecting on their own practice through observing children at play.
