Reading Helps Kids Fly - Better Beginnings at Home

Did you know all four of the Shire of Dandaragan Libraries are members of the Better Beginning program which helps your build your child's early literacy skills in fun and engaging ways?

During the current COVID-19 restrictions, Dandaragan Library are presenting Better Beginnings from the comfort of your own home  Ask a friend to join you over Facebook or Facetime to watch their fun online sessions with welcome songs, book reading and rhymes and a craft activity.

We are also excited to share with you the State Libraries new initiative Better Beginnings at Home and invite you to like the State Libraries Better Beginnings Facebook page and  join in every day at 10:30am and 2:30pm for fresh and free ideas to help you.  These online resources can help you continue to support your child's learning and literacy skills until we can welcome you back to our libraries in-person.

We hope Better Beginnings at Home helps you to read, talk, sing, write and play with your child every day.
