Pre-School Resource Pack

This pack has been compiled by the speech and language therapists working within the local Children’s Centre teams.  It has been designed to provide preschool settings with advice and practical activities for supporting speech and language development in young children.


Many of the activities suggested within the pack can be used in conjunction with the Talking Boxes resources within your pre-school setting.  For parents, Chattersacks are available to borrow from all Children’s Centres for use with children at home.

Please note that throughout this pack ‘he/she’ will be referred to as ‘he’ and ‘parent/carer’ will be referred to as ‘parent’.
