30 million words @Holyrood Altrincham

We are passionately excited about our recent re-launch at Holyrood Altrincham. Our newly named nursery, Holyrood Altrincham 30 Million Words © is launching on Saturday 4th October, there will be lots of activities on offer and opportunities to find out more information about our fantastic nursery! We would love you to come along and see for yourself.

30 Million Words © is an initiative originally set up by the University of Chicago based on a world-famous study by researchers at Rice University in the USA, Betty Hart and Todd Risley (1995). The study found that children in a language-rich environment hear thirty million more words by the time they are four than children in a language-poor environment.

We have decided to develop this concept within our nursery, we strive to offer a language rich environment where your child’s development is at the centre of everything we do.
