Play Time is Talk Time: Early Literacy in Playgrounds

Commitment by

Shane's Inspiration

In 2015, Shane’s Inspiration and Landscape Structures, Inc. committed to partnering with Too Small to Fail to develop 20 new playgrounds that incorporate parent-child conversation prompts across the country by June 2016. Specifically, the partners will support families in resource poor communities by integrating “Talking is Teaching: Talk, Read, Sing” creative materials on panels and signage on display in playground settings, featuring both English and Spanish language. These visuals will be designed to boost children’s early brain and language development by prompting fun and enjoyable conversations, stories and songs while parents and children play together.
