PACEY supporting Chatterbox Challenge 2016!
Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years (PACEY) and our members are delighted to support I CAN’s Chatterbox Challenge 2016.
Here at PACEY we support childcare professionals to deliver high standards of care and learning. I CAN’s Chatterbox Challenge is an event many of our members look forward to and is a great way to get the children in their care involved in a fun, themed event with a fantastic learning outcome.
As childcare professionals our members play an important role in promoting and supporting speech, communication and language development and we provide training and resources to help guide them with best practice to include in the learning for the children in their care.
Alongside our own resources and training, as part of our partnership with I CAN we host a regular blog from speech and language therapist and I CAN Communication Advisor Amanda Baxter, and sell I CAN’s brilliant resources in our shop. Also, as part of last year’s event we hosted a selection of free downloadable activities for our members which everyone loved!
I CAN’s Chatterbox Challenge event is a brilliant way to help children develop their communication skills by learning songs based on children’s surroundings. The free pack which you can sign up for here includes a range of activities to help strengthen their development.
What’s more, each activity is linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) for England and Foundation Phase (Wales) helping to develop a range of skills including attention and listening, one of the early learning goals. Plus our members can partner with parents for the big sing-a-long events.
Last year our members were super excited about the Chatterbox Challenge and over 550 children in our members’ care benefited from the fantastic resources and helped fundraise for such a worthy course.
This year we’re all delighted to support Chatterbox Challenge 2016 with the theme of ‘Ben and Holly’s Elf and Fairy Party’ – a favourite of many of the children we know! We love how it’s all about getting young children to take part in fun party games while chattering about what they are doing, seeing and hearing. With listening and attention being the foundation skills for good communication and language development, young children’s learning will benefit from this fun activity pack, all about having fun and being aware of others in their party and surroundings. Join in the fun and register for your FREE Chatterbox Challenge Activity Pack here!
