Reading, writing, talking, singing and playing supports the development of six early literacy skills in children - print motivation, print awareness, letter knowledge, narrative skills, phonological awareness and vocabulary. Our Early READ Programme for children aged 0-6 aims to do just that! We welcome teachers and parents to join in to nurture a love for reading.

Workshops for Parents: Awaken the Reader in your Child

This interactive parent-child programme provides tips and fun activities that you can do with your little one to spark their love of reading. Highly recommended for parents with children aged 2 to 6.

Baby Lapsit and Baby Songs and Rhymes

These programmes are intended for parents with babies up to 12 months. Parents will be introduced to simple songs, action rhymes and finger plays that they can use to interact and bond with their babies at home. These songs and rhymes are especially selected for babies under one year old, and incorporate gentle swaying and bouncing movements that babies enjoy.

Baby Lapsit sessions are held at the libraries while Baby Songs and Rhymes sessions are held virtually.

Jiggle Read and Rhyme and Toddler Songs and Rhymes

These programmes are parent-child programmes targeted at toddlers aged 1-3 years old. The session supports the child’s early development through interactive sessions with songs, rhymes and stories that come alive. It also aims to increase parent’s awareness of how to get their child reading from young while providing an opportunity for parent-child bonding.

Jiggle Read and Rhyme sessions are held at the libraries while Toddler Songs and Rhymes sessions are held virtually.



The kidsREAD programme aims to grow the love of reading and instil good reading habits in children aged 4-6 years old from less privileged households.
