Every Child a Talker (ECaT)

Every Child a Talker (ECaT) was a national government project implemented to develop the language and communication of children from birth to five years of age. 

As a setting we use ECaT tips and guidance to ensure children attending our sessions develop essential communication and language skills. We also complete ECaT audits to track the communication and language develop of the children and identify early any needs in the development area.

ECaT Posters are produced regularly by Southampton City Councils Early Years and Childcare team.  The posters can be found on the right hand side for you to view and use at home with your child.

The 2018 ECaT Posters focus on the theme of 'More Than Words'.  The monthly posters and incorporate a suggested activity.

The 2017 ECaT Posters focus on Listening and Attention and also incorporate a suggested activity.

The 2016 ECaT Posters follow the ‘Top Tips for Talking’ theme and include either a recommended Website of the Month or a Nursery Rhyme of the Month.
