The Supporting Emergent Literacy through Play Certificate Programme aims at enhancing students’ language and literacy development along with knowledge and skills to enrich learning experiences within a play-based programme. This approach employs literature/picture books and storytelling. It shows how books and storytelling enhance children’s development and other aspects of their lives.
This programme encourages children to express their feelings and thoughts and to deal with the stress and challenges they face in life. It also explores the ways early childhood educators develop stories with children and how they foster effective verbal, non-verbal, and media communication techniques to promote active learning.
