Talking To Children Is Critical - KSL and Neighborhood House

KSL Channel 5 did a piece on the importance of language for children growing up. They came to Neighborhood House Children Center, and we're so grateful for the opportunity! Click here to watch!

 

 "Though babies can’t talk right away, language development begins right at birth. By the time they enter preschool, many children know thousands of words and their vocabularies continue to grow every day, making it important for parents to talk with their children as often as possible, no matter what language they speak at home.

Like other growing children, 4-year-old Mateo Cazares is inquisitive and energetic.

“He loves to talk,” his mom, Elizavet Cazares, said laughing, and he loves telling her about his day. “He always needs more attention, so I always ask him!”

Cazares is also a teacher at Neighborhood House where she brings all three of her kids, including 9-year-old Jesus and 18-month-old Fatmina, to learn and play with other kids this summer.

The Cazares family said they are proud of their Mexican heritage and culture."
