Clarence Park Community Centre Playgroup News
Clarence Park playgroup community have donated boxes of children's books which have made their way to Mimili play group in the APY Lands.
Last week they were distributed at a launch about ‘lets read” which is a program run by the The Smith Family. This is an early literacy program designed to :
Support and enable parents and carers to have fun reading with their children
Develop in children the building blocks that are needed to make the literacy transition to school as easy as possible
Promote in the community, reading aloud with children from birth -5 years.
With out the generous support from Clarence Park, many families would not have access to books to be able to read to children at home.
The quality of the books was exceptional and parents filled up bags of great books with zest!
