Lady Castle Nursery

Lady Castle Nursery in Bradford took part in the National Literacy Trust's Early Words Together at Two programme to improve the language and communication skills of two-year-olds. The nursery used the programme to:

  • Encourage parents to be involved in their child’s experience at nursery
  • Build strong relationships with families
  • Enable families to share their knowledge about their child with practitioners
  • Inform parents about why communicating, singing and reading with their child is important for early language development
  • Introduce parents to simple ideas and activities to support their child's language development at home

This case study has been written by Isabella Ricordo (SEAL/PSED Leader) and Natalie Turner (Behaviour Officer) from Lady Castle Nursery and outlines:

  • The goals of the programme
  • Details about the parent-child sessions, including a timetable
  • Highlights from the programme, including a day trip with children and their families to St. Ives
  • Reflections on the programme and learnings
