Key Message For Parents: Children Learn From Watching and Copying 

  • The ability to imitate is present at birth 
  • This ability of learning through observation is made possible through a mirror neuron system in the brain 
  • By singing songs and playing games with babies we are assisting a child’s cognitive development by teaching language and social skills. 


Learning Outcome 1: Children are Effective Communicators 

  • Children are social beings, who from birth begin with gestures to communicate 
  • Children learn to interact verbally and non verbally with others as they experience the world 
  • Children’s home language underpins their sense of identity and belonging
