On-site Speech Language Therapist

We have a speech language therapist with a passion for language development working alongside Kaiako to promote early language development opportunities throughout the day. The SLT will be onsite engaging with children and teachers 2-3 days per week.

The Education Gazette has published an article that looks further at our approach to language skills in early learning. Read the article here.
