Storytime in the news
Our own much loved “Storytime lady” Fiona has been snapped by The Central Western Daily photographer in full flight reading a story. Storytime is held at 11am on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during school terms for pre-school age children. Every week the theme for Storytime changes and this week Fiona has been reading about cars and trucks. There is a wealth of evidence to support the fact that children who are read to aloud on a regular basis when they are young, are readily able to learn to read once they start school. It's never too early to start reading to your child. Even babies love hearing nursery rhymes. There's no magic formula, no right way of reading and, no special rules. A book, a quiet place, you and your child – it's all you need!
