As educators many of us are aware of the importance of language development in the early years. Yet communicating with infants provides them with much more than just language development; it is a huge part of their social and emotional development as well. Effective communication with babies helps you to create a caring bond with them, ensuring they feel more happy, confident and respected when in your care.
When we take time to intentionally observe babies, we begin to learn their true needs, desires and wants. We develop a deeper understanding of who this little person is, and in turn, develop a healthy and respectful relationship with them.
