At Sunrise we understand the importance of developing children’s communication skills and have a dedicated Communication Language and Literacy (CLL) Coordinator. By establishing warm, caring relationships in a language rich environment we support our babies and young children to become skilful communicators.
Staff use everyday opportunities to engage in meaningful conversations; after all children learn to talk by being talked to. They also provide a wide range of experiences designed to develop key skills in talking, listening, interacting, reading and writing. Babies and young children benefit from one-to-one story time and small group singing sessions with a sofa or ‘cosy corner’ in each room. Other activities used to promote these skills include music, art, rhyme, role-play and dancing.
