Further information
Sharing stories provides an opportunity for you to talk with your child, to have meaningful conversations and explore new ideas or experiences. Talking with your child is the best way to expose them to lots of language, and talking while interacting together in fun and playful ways is a great opportunity for learning. Make story time special, turn off distractions and give your child your undivided attention, even if it’s just a few minutes each day. Spending one on-one time with children is incredibly valuable in creating nurturing relationships that are consistent, warm and loving. Children’s development will thrive when they are feel safe, secure and are given opportunities to play and explore their own interests.
