Do you need help in developing an outdoor space that promotes children’s acquisition of language?
Do you need to audit your outdoor environment in order to identify where talking takes place -and where it doesn’t!
Do staff ensure that children have lots of opportunities for meaningful conversations outdoors?
This course considers the value of outdoors in supporting children’s acquisition of language. There are practical activities to help practitioners audit the existing opportunities for talk outdoors, and consider their own role in supporting children’s acquisition of language.
