Sharing Bedtime Stories

15th October 2019

Lots of research points to the importance of introducing young children to books and the love of reading.  In this short window of their early years reading stories to your child will expand their vocabulary as well as help them develop their imagination, creative thinking and of course the special bond developed with you whilst sharing story time.

To encourage reading at home, we have introduced a ‘home library’ this is located in the downstairs hallway, please visit the trolley as you wish choosing a story to take home.  These can be changed as often as you would like, all we ask is that you encourage your child to look after the books and also kindly return your book before selecting another one.
