Every Child a Talker (ECAT)
Every Child a Talker (ECAT) is a national project to develop the language and communication of children from birth to five years of age. The project was set up after concern about the high levels of ‘language impoverishment’ in the UK, and how this affects children’s progress in school and chances in life.
ECAT strategies and resources are designed to help you to create a supportive and stimulating environment within your provision in which children can enjoy experimenting with and learning language.
ECAT will encourage the development of early language through everyday fun and interesting activities which reflect children’s interests and enable them to become confident and skilled communicators.
