As a teacher of over 30 years, I have witnessed the Better Beginnings program helping to transform children’s lives and given them greater potential to grow, learn and develop, perform well at school and succeed in later life.

I tell stories in Vietnamese and read to my children in English.  I only started reading English after receiving Better Beginnings. 

One mother reads with her four year old every afternoon after school now.  She said without these books, they would not have any to read.

It’s wonderful to have support across the community emphasising the importance of reading and language development.

…I never thought of reading to my baby.  Better Beginnings has really boosted my confidence.
