The World of Stories and Rhymes

The world of Stories and Rhymes


Stories are read in small key groups, it is a time for children to share the attention of the key person; this is where it is different from the bonds formed at personal care times. We also believe that exposure to a variety of sounds is an essential element of learning to speak and read, it also allows us to encourage children to respect books and know how books work. We use story time to help babies see books as a pleasurable and important experience and to give older children the enthusiasm to want to read.
