Reading, and being read to, is critical to a child's development so having access children's books and developing a love for reading is important.
So on Thursday 14 June we will be celebrating 'Read with Me Day'.
We are asking Grandparents to join us on Thursday for 'Read with Me Day'. If there are any Grandparents that would like to read stories to small groups of children between 10am-11am then please let us know.
The Grandparents are also invited to stay for Morning Tea. Don't forget to ask the Grandparents to bring along their favourite children's book too.
|When: Thursday 14 June|
|Time: All day event - Grandparents are invited to join us between 10am -11am|
|Cost: $10 per child (Due Friday 8 June) - includes a themed Morning Tea, Vegetarian Pizza for Lunch and the children will each receive a Book to keep.|
We will commence the day with a Book Character Parade - so please ensure the children come dressed as their favourite book character. Prizes and certificate of participation will be given out on the day.
After the Parade - Grandparents will join us for a themed morning tea in the outdoor play area. The Grandparents will then have the opportunity to read stories to the children and even have the opportunity to talk about their favourite book as a child.
When the Grandparents leave at 11am we will then have a Where's Wally Game - Who can find where Wally is hiding???

It is never too early to start the path of reading to a child.
