Ten Minutes a Day is an exciting programme to help you to develop your baby’s pre-literacy skills and get them on the right track for reading and language development.
Ten Minutes a Day is a series of reading sessions that you share with your child of 0-1 that will help you develop skills to enhance language development, your child’s imagination, and make reading to your child part of your everyday routine.
