Language Development

Language development begins at birth. The first five years of life offer a critical window for brain growth. The more words and conversations you share together, beginning in infancy, the better prepared your child will be for life-long learning. When parents connect with their children through books, stories, songs and games, they are helping build a foundation for them to become strong readers and writers when they enter school. You are your baby’s first and best teacher!


Through our community multimedia campaign and free Talking is Teaching engagement events, our goal is to provide parents of children birth to five with fun ideas to nurture early learning.

About Us

Talking is Teaching is a local campaign launched in 2014 by the George Kaiser Family Foundation and Tulsa Educare designed to increase awareness across our community of the importance of talking, reading, singing and playing from birth. We believe these early connections are the foundation for healthy relationships and future success.
