Early Words Together course

Early Words Together is a 6-week course for children aged 2 to 5 years old and their parents or carers.

The course aims to build on your child's language skills before they start primary school. This includes teaching your child some basic reading and writing.

As a parent, you'll find out about activities you can do at home to help your child learn to read and write.
