These early literacy principles are fun ways you can learn and discover literacy with your little one at the library. Attend a program, check out a board book, a story box or practice some of our favourite songs and rhymes at home.
Early literacy and emergent language
Children develop the skills they need to communicate very early and at their own pace. They also acquire the skills to read years before they start school. As a parent or caregiver, you are your child’s first and best teacher. We can help you get started!
We provide this support through all our parent-child programming which features a playful approach to language development by sharing rhymes, songs and stories designed to help families create a literacy-rich home environment. Your children can make new friends and you can connect with other parents and caregivers in your community.
