Books, Baby Babbles, and You!

Infant and Toddler Specialist
Capital District Child Care Council

Hamden, NY 13782

Babies are born ready to learn and respond to their environments right from birth.  Babies tall and small are constantly communicating with us through a variety of means.  Our job is to translate this communication into spoken language as they grow.  We can help each child develop a playful and passionate love of language and books.  In this training we will prepare you with a "tool chest" of games and experiences that build language and communication skills.  We will watch videos to further examine the "serve and return" of shared language experiences.  We will also discuss applying these skills to shared reading experiences.  Many fabulous children's books will be on hand for us to read and review!
