Staff make children's communication and language a priority. They ask questions and challenge children to work out problems. They give children plenty of time to think and respond.

For example they ask children what they could use to make eyes for a model they are creating. Children share their ideas and independently search for additional resources to complete their models.Children benefit enormously from the 'story of the week' and the 'word wall.'

Staff use the 'word wall' to teach children new vocabulary they hear in the 'story of the week'. For example, staff teach children the meaning of the word 'internet' from a story about a chicken using a computer. They provide computer keyboards for children to use and explore.
