Playing with peers great for language acquisition


Toddlers word learning skills increase around their peers!


New research of the University of Waterloo has found that children who are attending early learning centres like Buttercups may have an advantage over their peers when it comes to language acquisition! While all toddlers showed “surprisingly good” speech processing skills when it came to deciphering the speech of their peers, those who have more exposure to other children, such as in an early learning centre like Buttercups, are particularly good at associating a new word to a new object, which is an important part of word learning.
