Early Reading Together® programme
We are facilitating these workshops in Katikati & Parkvale. The programme is aimed at working alongside families to support their children's language and literacy development 👩🎓 A fun way to learn together as a family 😃

Early Reading Together® Class of '22, Session 2: Great reflections & learnings following session 1 particularly from the younger participants - in addition to helping with our children's literacy and language development, it also encourages them to ask questions, growing their confidence in small group settings.
Session 2 also enabled the adults to reflect on their learnings & having confidence to talk about their reading experiences. It doesn't matter how old we are, the smallest steps are always the biggest steps😊
Kathy Stewart: Reading is every kids right, day and night.
