Little Listeners Group for 4-5 year olds in North Berwick

Would you like to give your child a head-start into Primary 1 literacy? Little Listeners is a not to be missed opportunity!

Over 6 sessions your child will learn foundation skills for literacy with 2 very experienced speech & language therapists. Catriona and Isla will help your child make the jump from speech to literacy by developing key skills like rhyme & syllable awareness, hearing the difference between speech sounds, picking out the first sound in words and sounding out words.

Isla working with children in the Mobile Therapy Room near EdinburghThe group is designed to give children aged 4-5 an extra stepping stone between nursery and school. The sessions will focus on developing listening and sound awareness rather than teaching your child to read and write – there’s plenty of time for that at school! Parents will get ideas and advice on skills to practise each week and at the last group session Isla and Catriona will provide you with a profile of your child’s sound awareness skills.

Back from the Mountains

It’s nice to be home from the mountains and find that Spring is definitely springing in Scotland. It feels positively temperate compared to the double figure minus temperatures we experienced in La Plagne over the past 10 days!

We spent a fabulous week’s skiing with the best snow we’ve ever had in Europe and were exceptionally well looked after by Dave & Julia in the Ski La Source run Chalet Mathilde.
