Growing Words builds the capacity of early childhood educators in helping all children in the area of communication.  However, it also incorporates aspects of well-being, connectedness and identity since communication is the foundation for each of these domains.  A child understands themselves (identity) and others (connectedness) through the stories they hear, tell themselves and share with others.  The ability to tell their own story and be understood and valued by significant others has a direct impact on their well-being.
