At Home With Books
About This Program
AHWB encourages the language and literacy development of children in out of home care, and children in vulnerable families. These children typically have higher rates of learning difficulties and poorer outcomes educationally than other children. The regular enjoyment and reading of books is designed to address this imbalance.
How We Work / Who Can Use This Program
AHWB encourages parents and foster carers to read to and with children. Workshops promote enjoyment of books and provide tips and information to encourage adults to read aloud with children. AHWB aims every month to give each child connected to Marymead a brand new quality book as a gift. This is intended to encourage listening, speaking, reading and writing.
At Home With Books (AHWB) is currently not funded and relies solely on the generosity of our community. Supporters such as:
