Storytime for Toddlers

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments: 0

Your toddlers are active, cheeky, and constantly learning. With songs and rhymes, stories, movement and activities, Storytime for Toddlers is an interactive session geared towards developing your child’s early literacy capabilities.

 

This is an interactive session between parent (or caregiver) and toddlers best suited to ages 1-3 years, but all are welcome:

Dalby Library – Tuesdays, 10.30am

Chinchilla Library – Fridays, 10.15am

All sessions will continue throughout the school holidays!

 

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. Our Storytime for Toddlers sessions are carefully planned and delivered by specially trained staff to encourage your child’s development and early literacy skills. Combining strategies and exercises from leading and well proven early development practices, we’ve created a relaxed opportunity for parents and care-givers to embrace and become confident in their role as their child’s first and most important teacher.

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!
