Boosting Vocabulary

“How 'school ready' a child is at age four is strongly predicted by their vocabulary and ability to talk in short sentences at the age of two years.”


A child's vocabulary at age five is a predictor of his/her educational success and outcomes at age 30.

On our website you will find lots of videos and information about how to support and boost your child's vocabulary. Click the links below which will take you to the 'Listening and Attention',  'Stories' and 'Experiences and Experiments' areas of our website. Listen out for new words that your child may not have heard before. Practise saying the word and talk about what it means.
