Speaking & Listening
Speaking & listening in Early Years is a sophisticated yet crucial skill to grasp. Listening is very different to hearing. It engages focus and concentration. It means absorbing, acknowledging and understand what a person has said. When a child feels that they are heard and listened to, it instils a sense of feeling valued. It also means that they understand the importance of listening in return.
