A changing society has influenced the current generation of children in profound ways. Progress in technology, knowledge, and communication has affected people differently, allowing for diverse lifestyles. Researchers recognize the preschool years as a critical stage of development (Micatin & Mustard, 1999) for a child?s intellectual, social and emotional growth and confirm the fundamental importance of quality parent child interaction during these early years. The essence of preschool education is to lay the foundation for the potential for success in school and later life. The integration of speaking, listening and the development of language curricula that provides children with opportunities is critical. A preschool classroom that is ?talk-friendly? has an environment that calls for communication (Booth & Thornley-Hall, 1991). The teacher should focus on establishing and maintaining surroundings that help children realize the importance of communication. The classroom that is talk friendly motivates children to develop their oral communication skills in a variety of situations. Children need to understand that ideas are valued and respected.
