As children grow from babies to toddlers to preschoolers, their communication grows exponentially. However, their environment plays a huge role in the development of their communication. Children who are in a stable and supportive environment with peers and teachers have the best chances of excelling in communication.
At Bright Start Louisville, we nurture each child’s unique growth in communication. Here are just a few skills we emphasize.
Everyone knows that communication is more than talking. In any conversation, each person needs to take turns talking and listening, as well as expressing interest through nonverbal cues. These are skills that children must learn and cultivate, and there’s no better place to practice than with peers under the instruction of an engaged teacher!
As a part of developing well-rounded communication, we encourage children to share stories, tell about their hobbies, share their dreams, or tell their favorite foods and desserts. Sharing these experiences with one another enables children to practice their communication skills. In turn, the children will bond with each other and have relationships for years to come.
Asking good questions is an acquired skill, and it’s one our teachers encourage every child to gain! Although questions may seem simple, such as “what’s your favorite color?”, these questions reveal curiosity. Fostering this curiosity is how children grow from asking simple questions to asking questions from deep thought. It is a skill that has lifelong benefits.
Again, this skill is best practiced with a group of peers under the instruction of a teacher. It’s even better when children have years to practice this skill before starting school, so they can ask good questions of their school teachers.
