Sign along at Wyeside Day Nursery in Hereford
We have qualified staff who practice sign along with our children. “Sign-along is a key word sign-supported communication system based on British Sign Language (BSL) and is used in spoken word order. It uses speech, sign, body language, facial expression and voice tone to reference the link between sign and word”. Sign-along is used throughout the nursery to support communication and language development. It is used on a day to day basis as well as being emphasised in small group work through song and story times by our qualified staff.
Children from Wyeside Day Nursery have been making the headlines by once a month visiting their local Nursing Home, Coldwell House Care Home. The elderly residents and children do various activities together, such as making Valentine’s Day cards.
