Funding for Early Reading Together®

Is the Early Reading Together® programme supported by the New Zealand Ministry of Education?

Yes. For details, please see the relevant TKI webpage available here.

For those in the Early Childhood Education sector in New Zealand, the following information was published in the Ministry of Education Early Learning Regional News – Feb 2018:

The Early Reading Together® programme is available to all early learning services, including playgroups, who want to work with their whānau to explore ways of supporting the language and literacy of their tamariki.

How is the Early Reading Together® programme funded?

The Early Reading Together® programme is funded by the sale of resources and, in particular, the resources for parents/whānau. For a summary of the various costs associated with sustaining Early Reading Together® and Reading Together®, please see this FAQ.

Why can't we copy the Early Reading Together® resources?

As well as being prohibited by law, the unauthorised copying, publication, adaptation or reproduction (e.g. on websites) of any of the Early Reading Together® programme resources directly undermines the sustainability of Early Reading Together® and puts its future at risk.
