Say that again!
Is your child two to three years old?
Did you know that your child is learning new words all the time and hearing them repeated will help them to learn them quicker? Find out what else you can do to help develop their language and communication skills in our free leaflets and cards. And most of the tips and ideas are free and quick to do too.

Did you know that your child is learning new words all the time and hearing them repeated will help them to learn them quicker? Find out what else you can do to help develop their language and communication skills in our free leaflets and cards.

For communication tips and to find out what a child this age can normally do take a look at our free Every Child a Talker leaflet for two to three year olds.

If you're looking for activity ideas that will help develop your child's communication and language skills then look no further, as our free Talking Time cards for toddlers could be just what you need.

And if your memories of being two are a little hazy, watch the short film below to see life through the eyes of a child. It's from The Communications Trust. Just click on the film to start it.

If you missed last week's Parents' Pages e-bulletin, catch up now as we looked at children one to two years old.

And if your child is older, we have language leaflets for three and four year olds plus Talking Time cards for pre-schoolers.

NHS survey for Surrey parents of under 5's

This survey is to help NHS Surrey understand what parents know about health services in Surrey and which ones they use when their children are ill or injured.

It is specifically for parents of under 5's. If you are not a parent who lives in Surrey with a child under the age of 5 please do not fill this in.

The results of the survey will be used to see if there is more NHS Surrey can do to help parents when their children are unwell or injured. And to ensure they are doing all they can to make sure parents know what services are available and when to use them.

The survey will take around five minutes to complete and everything you write will be anonymous.

Flu Fact
Protect yourself and your baby
Get the jab, get flu safe

When you’re pregnant you’d do anything to protect your unborn baby, but many women don’t realise just how dangerous flu can be. If you’re pregnant the flu jab is quick, safe and free – just ask your midwife or GP and make an appointment. You can have the jab at any stage of pregnancy and it can also protect your baby for the first few months after birth.

 


When you’re pregnant you’d do anything to protect your unborn baby, but many women don’t realise just how dangerous flu can be. Getting vaccinated against flu is the best way to protect yourself and your baby from the virus, and to make sure you stay flu safe all winter. If you’re pregnant the flu jab is quick, safe and free – just ask your midwife or GP and make an appointment. You can have the jab at any stage of pregnancy and it can also protect your baby for the first few months after birth.

Tricia Spedding, immunisation lead at NHS Surrey, said: “Pregnant women have a greater risk of serious illness if they catch flu. In fact, studies have shown that pregnant women with some strains of flu are four times more likely to develop serious illness and four to five times more likely to be admitted to hospital than most people.”

It normally takes up to two weeks to develop protection after the vaccine  and then it lasts all winter. Pregnant women are urged to get a jab as soon as possible to minimise the risk to themselves and their babies.
