Language and learning

Explore this section

One of the most amazing and important accomplishments of infancy and early childhood is the development of language. Babies start to say their first words around one year of age – and in no time (around age 4), they know more than 1500 words and begin telling stories. Language skills developed during the preschool years serve as a wonderful foundation for learning in school.
