Promoting early literacy, 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 children can start school with the pre-literacy skills they need to feel confident. 

Developmentally appropriate books are gifted, 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. This also supports the parents and carers to share books with 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.
