Toddlers in the Vale of Glamorgan are the first of 10,000 two-year-olds across Wales to receive new book bags, designed to support their speech and language development.
The book bags have been developed as part of the Welsh Government's 'Flying Start' programme, which works to give children living in the most disadvantaged communities in Wales a better start in life.
The book bag contains a Welsh language book, English language book, bilingual activity sheets, scribble pad and a set of crayons, and builds on the existing book bags distributed to all children aged 9 months and 18 months.
We know early language development has a huge impact on children’s literacy, social skills and behaviour as they grow up. Research shows a three-year-old’s vocabulary is predictive of their income at 30 years of age.
This is why support for toddlers’ speech, language and communication skills is such a key element of our flagship Flying Start programme. The new Flying Start Book Bag will support families to have fun reading, rhyming and learning together.
