If you are a parent, you know by now the sheer amount of work that goes into making sure your child has all of his/her needs met on a daily basis. While you are likely doing a phenomenal job providing for their basic needs, you may not realize that children have cognitive needs as well that can cause them to become more intelligent, well-rounded people. Promoting the use of verbal communication is absolutely one of these needs and now science is backing the best way to do it.dreamstime_xxl_38917219

Communication is the Key

Research conducted by Stanford University is claiming that the more a toddler is spoken to, the more quickly their vocabulary and general language skills will improve. While the study focused mainly on the amount of time parents spent talking to their own children, the message is loud and clear: exposure to language, regardless of who by, is the very best way to grow your child’s language skills and promote more cognitive thinking.

Unfortunately, you have a job and cannot stay at home all day talking to your child to ensure they are getting the most out of the hours of the day they are awake. There is no need to fret, however, because First Class Child Development can assist you in making sure your child has the exposure to language that they need in order to be successful. We place a large emphasis on language skills in our daycare and preschool because we know just how important those first couple of years of life can be when it comes to the development of the brain. When you enroll your child in our facility, you can remain at ease all day knowing they are in good hands and that they are also learning as much as possible when they are away from you.
