A Place to Talk for Babies

Babies need to interact directly with other nurturing, responsive and genuinely caring people, to hear talk about what they are seeing and experiencing in order for them to develop communication skills. Creating developmentally appropriate environments for very young babies is a key responsibility of everyone interacting with them. Becoming more attuned to babies’ responses and preferences for using communication and space helps us to identify the places where they are most confident, secure, communicative and engaged.

This publication will help you to understand and appreciate what it’s like to be a very young baby, developing language and securing relationships. Through case studies and commentary you will be able to make professional connections with how this information relates to how learning environments for babies might look, how adults and babies might interact together and how babies respond in that environment.

The 12 case studies featured in the book offer a wide range of different context and situations where practitioners, babies and their families spend time. There are lots of suggestions and ideas to help you to reflect on the environments you create in your context.
