For Children 

3 - 5 Years

Between 3 and 5 your child is beginning to understand stories and answer questions about story books. They are beginning to ask questions like, what, why and when? They are beginning to understand more complicated language and are starting to take turns in longer conversations.

Let's Get Started
Your child's improving language skills, combined with their increased attention span, makes sustained conversations possible at this age, and the more conversation, the better. Your modelling of good language skills is more important than ever. So, no matter how your child constructs a sentence or creates new words, try to respond with proper grammar and vocabulary and model those tricky words for them.
