Early numeracy and literacy skills and concepts are introduced through a mixture of stories, poems, rhymes and songs, and using familiar speech and language. The programmes invite the young listeners to respond to direct questions, to join in the actions or the words of the songs and to share in the enjoyment of good stories enhanced by the use of sound effects. The programmes encourage the appreciation of music and the participation in a range of musical activities.
