Giving children the best start in life

Childminders
Chatta provides unique training and 
resources to enable childminders to
support the children in their care in
becoming effective communicators

The chatta approach has had a huge impact on the progress of the children I look after. The parents have been very positive and really value the way chatta allows us to work in partnership.

Chatta App Users Guide

chatta App with User and Video Guide

The chatta app (iOS and Android) uses audio visual technology to build up a diary of events and memories. Adult descriptions provide a powerful model for the children to listen to and link language to their experiences.

Childminder updates

Childminders can access a growing bank of ideas and activities which can be used to support play, learning and parent partnerships.

Parent Partnership

‘Chats’ can be shared using the chatta app, giving parents instant access to their child’s spoken language activities which will encourage further dialogue in the home.
