Giving children the best start in life
Launching 14th June 2017
Parents and Carers
Chatta enables parents to use digital technology effectively to support their child's development.
Chatta for Parents is an approach which helps them to support their child’s learning and development. Children love it and parents are reassured, guided and supported by chatta’s team of education experts. Nurseries and schools across the UK and overseas are using this innovation to give children the very best start in life.
Laura explains how chatta has changed her son’s life on The Radio Humberside Breakfast Show on the 14th June 2017.
How nurseries, schools, children's centres and childminders can engage parents and carers
The chatta approach is highly effective and will engage parents in home learning. Using chatta daily and consistently ensures that teaching approaches are shared in a stimulating and motivating way.
Maximise the impact of every lesson
Chats can be shared easily and quickly. They are instantly accessible by all parents on any digital device. The chatta approach provides schools with a very powerful and dynamic tool for home/school learning.
Chatta enables best practice in your school or setting to be continued at home allowing learning outside of the classroom.
Support for all
The impact of a shared chatta approach is instantly evident. Some of the areas that can be supported by successful chatta partnerships include:
- SEND Interventions
- Communication and verbal fluency
- Explaining and learning new methods
- Building knowledge and understanding
- Learning a new language at home in a stimulating and motivating way

Chatta App with User and Video Guide
The easy to use chatta app (iOS and Android) uses audio visual technology so that parents and carers can build up a diary of events, experiences and memories through photographs. Adults then record their own voices talking about the photographs. These descriptions provide a powerful model for the children to listen to, rehearse themselves and then replicate, linking language to their experiences.
*Chatta for Parents/Carers is available free via participating schools, nurseries, childminders and children’s centres
