“It’s gold dust, really, for families to be given those tips and tools to be able to use, particularly in those first five years.
“In the first few months there’s a huge amount of support from the midwives and health visitors, but from then onwards, there’s a massive gap before they then start school,” she added.
Tiny Happy People focuses on the development of children’s language using a range of free digital resources.
The new initiative’s core message tells parents to talk to children from as early an age as possible.
