Early Reading

Enjoying books and reading stories from a very early age is crucial to the development of children. Books assist children in understanding words, the progression of their speech, developing their imagination and can be a wonderful shared activity. Reading in the early years has been linked to increased concentration and there is evidence that suggests that early reading promotes academic success, self-confidence and improved linguistic skills e.g. a wider vocabulary, as well as improved grammar and spelling.

Here at Play Away Day Nursery we share our love of books with the children on a daily basis. We introduce new books regularly, and use books to introduce new ideas, concepts and characters. As part of our continued effort to support our parents in sharing books with their children at home, we have a range of Language Bags available in a variety of different languages, that parents can take home and share with their child!
