Did you know that that up to 90% of a child’s brain development happens in the first 5 years? Research is now telling us that when babies and children get what they need – it can have a lasting effect on their future.
Sharing stories, rhymes, singing, talking and playing with your child from birth builds a foundation for your child’s future development that can last a lifetime.
Noosa Library Service’s First 5 Forever program aims to provide strong emergent literacy foundations and life-long learning capabilities for children 0-5 years, by supporting parents and primary caregivers as their child’s first and most important educator.
Let’s work together as a community to support each other and build on the endless opportunities families have daily to interact with their children and provide opportunities for learning. This means spending time in the early years talking, playing and reading with our children so their growing brains get what they need!
Noosa Library Service offers a variety of programs to support this early learning in children, for a full list of programs click here.
