Communication and Language in the Early Years

Language is the key to learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and beyond. The acquisition of language is the single most important and complex skill a child learns in their first five years. It is one of the biggest predictors of success for children as they move on to school and later in life.
