Tips for Families with Preschoolers

When you talk, read, and sing with your child, you’re strengthening your bond with her and helping her learn. Research shows that talking, reading, and singing with your child every day from birth builds her brain as well as important language, math, reading and social-emotional skills.

You probably naturally talk to your child about the things you do and see each day. We encourage you to keep doing it, and do it more—in whatever language you feel comfortable speaking at home. The more conversations, songs, and stories you share during your everyday moments together, the more you are preparing your child to succeed—in school and in life!
