Building Home Libraries

Building Home Libraries Program is an early years multilayered literacy program. It aims to build children’s learning capacity, oral language and literacy development. The Building Home Libraries program provides pre-schools and kindergartens with quality picture books, craft resources and tip sheets which they give to the families they work with.

Staff receive professional learning on ways to share literacy messages with parents/carers and techniques for role modelling ways to use the books and resources to support rich home learning.

We offer a 3 year old program and a 4 year old program.

The books in the Building Home Libraries program are from our publishing house Little Book Press and have been carefully selected to suit each age group.
