Better Beginnings believes that literacy transforms lives. We are excited to welcome you to our new initiative, Better Beginnings at Homeand we invite you to join us every day at 10:30am and 2:30pm for fresh and free ideas to help you build your child's early literacy skills in fun and engaging ways.

Better Beginnings supports parents in reading to children aged 0-5 so that they build the early literacy skills they need to become good readers and succeed at school.

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