The Better Beginnings initiative aims to link research to practice by promoting to all parents the importance of reading, sharing rhymes and talking to your baby. Research shows that reading to babies will build their language and understanding and gives them an early love of books, supporting their future success as readers.
Better Beginnings has the potential to build a lifelong relationship between families and public libraries in responding to their information and learning needs.
Specifically Better Beginnings aims to:
Rhyme Time and Story Time
Baby Rhyme Time and Story Time are initiatives of the Better Beginnings program. Rhyme Time is a great way to bond with your little one while introducing them to language, music and actions. Your baby also gets to interact with other babies, which is an important part of their development. Story Time is a chance for your toddler or pre-schooler to listen to a story, while learning to sit on the mat. They can also participate in creative craft activities relating to the story.
Rhyme and Story Time are held during school term at the following times. We'd love to see you there - the more the merrier!
