Give your kids the best start in life in Bulimba

Making sure your kids are in the best possible surroundings is important for any family, which is why real estate in Bulimba is so popular.

The Queensland government has announced plans for a new literacy program, which will be rolled out across public libraries all over the state.

Known as the Best Start program, the initiative includes a range of ways to improve literacy, such as a toolkit that parents and caregivers can access, as well as a funding boost for local libraries.

Arts Minister Ian Walker said: “There are about 68,000 children born in Queensland every year and research shows that investing in their education earlier is connected both to their future happiness and success.”

Library staff will also be given the opportunity to join forces with early childhood sector workers, while the facilities will receive funding for events such as rhyme time and storytelling.

Figures from the state government show just 48 per cent of parents regularly read to their children between the ages of three and eight, even though ten minutes a day could improve their literacy.

Four years of research have been carried out{and it’s hoped this program will result in increased confidence and performance among youngsters throughout Queensland.
