Learning language is fun at the Carel du Toit CHAT Centre, August 2018
CHAT parents and their children took part in experienced based learning, facilitated by Early Interventionist – Mariette Nosworthy. The task of the day was to strategize along with their little ones on how to get lemons out of a tall tree on the CDTC grounds. Parents thought long and hard and came up with all sorts of ideas, while communicating their actions with their children at all times as part of language development. Parents jumped, climbed, put their kids on their necks, stood on dustbins and even hit the lemons out of the tree with a scooter.
They enjoyed the rewards of their labour by making some refreshing lemon juice. The activity was enjoyed by parents and children alike, learning language is so much fun at Carel du Toit CHAT Centre.

As the week continued, we had such fun making our own mud for our pigs and piglets to roll in!
