In general, babies begin to repeat the words and sing from 2 years old ".

In our workshops, the speakers listen to everyone (and this is only possible if the group is reduced); we will run workshops in nurseries and it will be in groups of 3 to 5 children from 2 to 3 years. For toddlers, it is often necessary to repeat the same words and the same songs so that they retain them.
