FSU 10 Components of Quality Care for Infant & Toddlers-Emerging Language & Literacy
The path to language and literacy begins with interactions between adults and young children. In quality programs, teachers build language experiences within daily routines. When possible, teachers speak the primary or home language of the children. They respond to the sounds made by infants and toddlers, and use words to give meaning to what children are expressing. Teachers maintain a balance between listening to and talking with each child. Books and other print materials are available throughout the classroom. Shared reading is enjoyed daily and families are encouraged to read with their children at home. Songs, nursery rhymes, finger plays, and pre-writing materials promote the development of language and literacy. This training will provide strategies to promote these early language and literacy for children birth to 36 months.
Learners will demonstrate an understanding of:
1. Responsive approaches that support language development
2. Children’s communication attempts with others
3. Emergent print awareness
4. Supporting home language and family literacy
