Handful of Rhymes

Research has shown that singing nursery rhymes to your child from an early ages helps with their development. Singing the songs during your daily routines will support your child's language and communication skills and later will have a positive impact on their reading and writing skills.

Essex parents were invited to vote for their 5 most popular nursery rhymes and we have made them into Nursery Rhyme cards.

The TLC Rhyme cards have the rhyme on the back and on the front is an image representing the rhyme to help your child choose the song that they want to choose.
