How can communication and language skills in EYFS be encouraged?

Encouraging communication and language skills in Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is crucial for children's overall development. To promote these skills, it is important to provide children with various resources that support communication, such as different themed areas in nurseries that spark conversations and engagement. All interactions and activities in EYFS play a role in shaping children's speech and language abilities, so it is essential to create an environment where children feel confident communicating with peers and practitioners.

For children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) or those with English as an Additional Language (EAL), alternative methods of communication should be offered, not necessarily reliant on verbal communication. Utilizing resources like choosing cards or visual aids can help children express themselves effectively.

Patience is key when interacting with children as they navigate communication challenges. Providing them with ample time to express themselves and refraining from correcting their pronunciation mistakes can boost their confidence and language development. Acknowledging and supporting each child's individual developmental milestones is crucial in fostering effective communication skills in EYFS.

What tips do you have to encourage communication skills in nursery settings?

Hands-On Education emphasize the importance of providing children in EYFS with ample opportunities to explore resources that support their communication skills. It suggests that nurseries should offer various provision areas aligned with different themes and topics to engage children in conversations about their interests. The text also highlights the significance of supporting all children, including those with special educational needs or English as an additional language, in feeling confident while communicating with practitioners and peers. Additionally, it suggests using non-verbal communication tools like choosing cards to help children express themselves. The excerpt stresses the importance of being patient and not correcting children if they mispronounce words, but rather repeating the correct pronunciation back to them.
