It's never too early to start!

Up to 90% of brain development happens in the first five years, so make talking, reading and singing with your child part of your daily routine. It’s fun and helps little brains grow.

You are your child’s first and most important teacher!  Spend time everyday nurturing your child’s love of language by sharing rhymes, singing songs, telling stories or playing with them.

Mackay Regional Council Libraries deliver a range of interactive programs to enhance language and literacy development and provide interactive children's areas that encourage learning through play.
