An early literacy program with a focus on first language

 

The Book Buzz program aims to develop familiarity and engagement with books for children under five through a daily dedicated Story Time session, so these youngsters can start school with pre-literacy skills they need to feel confident. 

Developmentally appropriate books are provided, along with a structure to implement an engaging Story Time session that supports parents and carers in reading and enjoying books with their children in their home language. 

Research shows that children learn best in their own language. It also empowers the parents and carers to be the role models for their children, and instils a love of reading in the community.

If you already have a vibrant Story Time session, this program may enhance experiences with books for your children. If not, the Book Buzz program is a good place to start. If you would like to find out more, please contact us.
