Family Literacy Programs

Lively Babies and Techno Tots

Introduce your child to the delights of books and reading. Rhymes, lullabies, simple songs and short stories are so much more than note and rhythm – they have a way of bringing adults and babies together in warm, fun and loving ways.

The Lively Babies program nurtures imagination and joy in a relaxed baby bounce session and targets parents, grandparents and carers with infants up to 18 months of age.

Find the upcoming sessions at Council's Event Calendar.

Lively Stories

Lively Stories immerses children under five and their carers into the exciting and creative world of reading and play. Stories, songs, music, nursery rhymes, finger plays, chants, simple crafts, puppets and action-rhymes are fun and free and invite participation and learning for both parent/grandparent/carer and child.
