‘Come talk with me’ by Bournemouth Early Years

come talk with me

Supporting children in their early years is key to their speech, language and communication development, which will have a massive impact on their skills in later life.  SENCO representatives at Tops Bournemouth, Tops Boscombe and Tops Charminster have been attending workshops run by the Bournemouth Early Years team called ‘come talk with me’, which is a programme introduced to encourage parents and practitioners to work together to help young children with these three key areas.

Each childcare setting, children’s centre and library has a ‘Communication Champion’, whose role is to promote the development of good practice in speech, language and communication from inside their setting. They will also be able to signpost you to other areas of support, such as local speech and language groups. The Communication Champion for Tops Boscombe is Claire Rockingham, deputy manager. Claire has been attending the sessions on behalf of the nursery, meaning new ideas and tips towards encouraging child communication are brought in regularly.

Bournemouth Early Years have released a range of leaflets and booklets with step by step guides on what to look for as children grow and develop their speech, language and communication skills.  These are available on the Bournemouth.gov website or on the Bournemouth Early Years Facebook page.
