Roots of Literacy

istock-182708955

Just like a tree must have the foundation of its roots to grow, a child requires a foundation in order to read and write. From the day children are born they are building this foundation, called early literacy.

Literacy Support for Families

As your child's first teacher, you help lay that foundation for your child from birth.  Our centres offer:

  • Rhymes 
  • Books  
  • Pretend play 
  • Conversation 
  • Positive experiences 

Information for Families:

Newborns visiting any of our centres will receive a welcome bag that includes "Babies Love Books" (a month-to-month guide on reading with your baby) and a library gift voucher for a free book. Just visit one of our centres to receive your gift!
