Did you know singing, talking, and playing with babies and young children builds the skills they need to do well in school?
Research shows the more words children hear by the time they enter kindergarten, the more likely they are to succeed. Parents and caregivers play an important role in a child’s education from the time of birth. Give your child a head start by subscribing to TALK!
TALK empowers parents and caregivers of Washtenaw County children by suggesting easy ways to increase the number of words a child hears through reading, singing and playing.
By helping build these key literacy skills, TALK aims to improve the school readiness of our community’s children.
Texts from TALK will also connect parents to area events and services that offer learning opportunities for their children, such as library storytimes.
