1000 Books Before School

Did you know that reading together is the best way to encourage a love of books and lay down foundational literacy skills in your child?

The 1000 Books Before School program is a great way to track your child's reading progress. You can start any time until your child begins school, and your child has until the end of term 1 of the year they start school to finish reading.

If your local public library runs the program you may wish to register with them (you can find a list of participating libraries below).
