The Narembeen Library partners with the Better Beginnings WA Program. We support parents in reading to their children so that the children are able to build the early literacy skills needed to succeed later on in life. We aim for every child to have a wonderful and educational experience of books and rhymes and help them to share them with their family and friends. Literacy begins at birth therefore 75% of brain development happens in a child's first 3 years of living. Better Beginnings and the Narembeen CRC aim to help develop literacy skills in all young children through fostering a love of books and language.
