The New Zealand Ministry of Education is inviting applications for funding to implement the Early Reading Together® programme. For those in the Early Childhood Education sector in New Zealand, the following information was published in the Ministry of Education Early Learning Bulletin | He Pānui Kōhungahunga | Update – 18 August 2022:
Applications open for Early Reading Together®
Early learning services, puna reo, kōhanga reo and playgroups can apply for funding to deliver Early Reading Together®.
Early Reading Together® is a strengths-based, literacy intervention that supports parents and whānau to learn strategies to positively support their children’s reading at home. It runs over three workshops (1 hour 15 minutes in length).
The programme has the same strong basis in research evidence as Reading Together® Te Pānui Ngātahi and provides a solid foundation for literacy development for pre-schoolers and five-year-olds.
How to apply
To start the process, request an application form by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are open until 31 March 2023. Applicants will have 10 weeks to deliver the programme if their application is successful.
