Communication and the Early Years Foundation Stage: Communication and language is one of the key areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which is designed to aid development in the under-fives and prepare them for school. This short, online course is tailored to educate childcare workers about this crucial subject. The course focuses on the importance of developing good communication skills in children and how we can support this by helping them build their confidence with language by modelling their conversation, listening to them and demonstrating that what they say is important and valued. Not only that, the course gives you the opportunity to reflect on how well you communicate with the children in your setting and how this can be improved. All study takes place online, meaning you can choose a suitable time and place to give the course content your full attention. You will learn through activities, reading, presentations and videos, meaning the content is interesting and easy to apply to your real world setting.
