It All Starts with Words


It all starts with simple, beautiful words.

Whether cooking or counting, playing games or singing songs, or having a great conversation while walking the dog, making words a priority is a simple way to make a huge impact on your child's future - and it's never too early to start.

Research shows that the number of quality, positive words a child hears in an hour can dramatically impact their future success. Some kids only get 500-600 words an hour and others get more than 2000! And 2000 is where we want you to start.

2000 Words to Grow is an initiative of the London Child and Youth Network. CYN focuses on creating happy, healthy children and youth today, who will be caring, creative, responsible adults tomorrow.
