Language and Literacy

At Newark Nursery our children are encouraged to take part in a variety of activities to promote their language and communication skills


Developing Literacy Activities through Play

  • Children learn about literacy from birth.
  • Learning about literacy is a continuous process which has its roots in everyday activities at home.
  • Literacy roots are nourished by the type, amount and quality of literacy which is used in real life contexts and serves a real purpose in people’s lives.
  • Parents, significant adults and professionals play an important role in helping children develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge that lead to literacy.
  • Children must be helped to discover that:


What I do see or hear or touch, I can talk about

What I talk about, I can write about, or someone can write for me.

What is written down, I can read or someone can read it for me
