OUR PROGRAM‎ > ‎

Communicating

As children learn and grow throughout the Kindergarten year, they are developing skills to effectively communicate with others and begin tuning into symbol systems in their environment.

As they play and interact with peers, teachers and our Kindy program, children are exploring and expanding ways to use language for a variety of purposes:
  • They develop an understanding of spoken language conventions and nonverbal communication
  • They are supported to use age-appropriate speech patterns, vocabulary and sentence structures
  • They use language to communicate their ideas/experiences, ask questions, describe, compare, explain and give directions in a variety of social contexts
  • They develop skills for active listening and taking turns in conversations.
