The global pandemic has had a deep and widespread impact on early childhood development and education including crucial language and communication skills, literacy, and socialization.
World Nursery Rhyme Week is a fun, enjoyable initiative aimed at children from newborn to 7 years-old and participation is free of charge. Nursery rhymes help to boost early language, communication and literacy skills in a way that is exciting and engaging for young children. We were excited to celebrate World Nursery Rhyme Week and the impact nursery rhymes have on our Cardinals. Nursery rhymes provide bite-sized learning opportunities for young children to develop key developmental skills and can often be the trigger for hours of creative and open-ended play. They are a powerful learning source in early literacy and enable children to become interested in the rhythm and patterns of language.
