Spalding's BeBright Pre-School gets 'Makaton Friendly' status for helping children to communicate

Staff at Spalding's BeBright Pre-School have been recognised by a national charity for helping children to communicate better.

BeBright, set up by Stephanie Barrett and Laura Spillett in September 2018, has received Makaton Friendly status for its use of the Makaton language system that uses symbols, signs and speech to improve communication skills.

Laura said: "We are the first pre-school in South Holland to gain this award and both Stephanie and I feel that Makaton supports our youngest children who are acquiring language skills, as well as children with additional needs who are not able to communicate verbally and those new to learning English.
