Component Overview

When adults and children play together, language-rich interactions can support children’s early brain and language development. The Nook's tiny house look and feel combined with activities and messaging, developed with guidance from the National Head Start Association and Too Small to Fail, can prompt adult-child conversations and support whole-child learning across key developmental domains. They include literacy, math, science, nature, social-emotional development, nutrition and physical activity.
