The Hon Peter Garrett MP, Minister for School Education, Early Childhood and Youth today launched the Let’s Read National Early Literacy Campaign at the International QEC conference in Melbourne.
Let’s Read supports Australian children to gain the foundational skills for language, literacy and learning success.
Building on existing evidence-based programs, the Let’s Read National Early Literacy Campaign will engage families, professionals and communities to promote high quality early years literacy promotion for children aged 0-5 years. The Campaign will use a multi-tiered and ecological approach generate a range of literacy promoting messages relevant to the developmental phases of children aged 0-5 years.
Murdoch Childrens Research Institute and The Smith Family together with The Royal Children’s Hopsital Centre for Community Child health are working in partnership to deliver Let’s Read.
