Language Acquisition in Preschoolers


The years between age 2 and age 5 mark an explosion in language learning. This period is critical for the development of vocabulary, the ability to understand others, and to communicate ideas. Yet some children at age 5 have a much larger store of words and much more language ability than other children. What causes this difference? Interactions with adults, like parents and caregivers.

Find out what you need to do to support children's language learning during the preschool years, and how to ensure children are ready for kindergarten and ready to read.
