Learning starts from birth, but how can I help my baby learn? How do I read books with a baby? And how do I find the time?
Storytime for Bubs aims to help parents and carers embrace and become confident in their role as their child’s first and most important teacher.
Storytime for Bubs is an interactive session between parent (or caregiver) and baby:
Chinchilla Library – Tuesdays, 9.00am
Dalby Library – Tuesdays, 9.00am
All other libraries – Register your interest at your local branch. With enough participants we can hold Storytime at any Library!
With funding through the State Government’s First Five Forever initiative, we’ve been able to put a concerted effort into research and development of this early literacy program. Combining strategies and exercises from leading and well-proven early development practices, we’ve created a relaxed opportunity to develop the bond between infant and carer while enhancing developmental potential through that relationship.
90 percent of brain development happens in the first five years of a child’s life, and language and development before age three is the single most important factor in school success. Sharing books, singing nursery rhymes and talking to your child from birth is the best way to support your baby’s communication and pre-literacy development.
It’s never too early to read, talk, play!
