ICAN Early Language Development Programme (ELDP)
BHT Early Education and Training's ICAN Early Language Development Programme (ELDP) is designed to improve early speech, language and communication development amongst 0-5s (primarily focusing on 0-2 year olds). The programme has been built on learning from previous early year’s speech, language and communication development programmes, including Every Child a Talker (ECaT) and Early Talk 0-3.
This is a 3 part course, delivered by our ICAN licensed Tutor over 2 full days and is recommended for Early Years Practitioners working with children 0-3 years.
The Aim of this course is for participants to be able to :
Describe the development of speech, language and communication skills in children under 3 years

BHT is a place where my child and I feel welcomed, valued and at home. The practitioners show that they are very educated, professional and friendly through interactions with myself and my child. By reviewing my child’s development with her key person, it is clear of the benefit nursery has on her education and the interactions she has with others.
Many thanks, you are a great team.
The guidance I receive at BHT makes a huge impact on the development of my daughter. I value the importance of sharing interests and strategies to give my child the best early years education possible. This shows through the most recent monitoring documents completed, as she is ahead in all stages of development.
