Communicating is one of four themes used in Aistear to describe children’s learning and development from birth to six years. It is about children sharing their experiences, thoughts, ideas, and feelings with others in many different ways. Through exciting and fun experiences, the Communicating theme helps children to 

  • use non-verbal communication
  • use language
  • make sense of the world through language
  • express themselves creatively and imaginatively.

Aistear has lots of ideas and suggestions for how this important learning and development can be supported for babies, toddlers and young children.
