Share your love and knowledge and help them succeed in life. In the womb to 5 years old.

Grandparents have a wealth of love and knowledge to share with their grandchildren. This video shows how grandparents can nurture their grandchild's communication so that they’re ready to succeed in life. This video covers from newborns and babbling babies right through to pre-school and school age children who can use words and sentences.

The video is divided into 3 main sections.

Tune In

It’s important to see things from your grandchild’s point of view when chatting and playing. Find out how watching and waiting helps you to let your grandchild take the lead in playing and talking – making your interaction fun and engaging for both of you.

Speak Up

Once you’re following your grandchild’s lead in play it’s time for you to add some language in! This is how your grandchild will learn to understand and use new words and sentences. Discover simple tips on how small changes in the way you talk can make big differences to the way your grandchild talks.

Try Out

This part gives grandparents practical ideas and activities to try with their child that will really boost talking and listening skills. You’ll learn how to use books in ‘Love Books, Love Learning’ and songs in ‘Songs for Today, Words for Life’ in a way that is specifically aimed at each stage of your grandchild's language development.
