Story Telling

Early Childhood Development

Early years of childhood form the basis of intelligence, personality, social behavior, and capacity to learn and nurture oneself as an adult. There is significant evidence that links the circumstances of adversity and habits formed in early years to the non-communicable diseases of adulthood. Kite Bangladesh focuses on the early childhood development.

Storytelling

Hearing a story can be an interactive event. Auditory processing is the ability to accurately process and understand spoken language. This skill is essential for comfort in a classroom and with peers, as children must be able to understand a teacher’s directions as well as communicate clearly and accurately with friends.
