The Children’s Book Council of Australia’s (CBCA) Victorian Branch committee, in partnership with The a2 Milk Company™, is proud to announce the launch of its Reading Together early childhood initiative.
The CBCA Victorian branch has commissioned the creation of a unique and engaging suite of resources that includes: Reading Tips postcards, posters, suggested reading booklets and book boxes featuring some of the best of Australian children’s literature. These amazing resources have been designed to foster and support the reading experiences of Victorian pre-school children and their families.
Initially, the resources will be made available to the early childhood centres in the Geelong-Corio-Norlane area – one of the 30 Best Start project sites identified by the Victorian Government to improve the health, development, learning and wellbeing of children.
The committee believes the Reading Together materials will be important in building parents’ ability to confidently guide their child’s early literacy development through engagement with quality literature in the home – a key step towards educational success and opportunity. A love of reading gives children the very best start and The a2 Milk Company™ is privileged and excited to have this opportunity to partner with CBCA Vic to create positive and enduring literature experiences for many Victorian families.
Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides the optimal balance of nutrition and protection during growth and development.
Good maternal nutrition is important in preparation for and during breastfeeding. If you are considering bottle feeding, always seek professional advice as introducing bottle feeding, either partially or exclusively, may adversely affect breastfeeding by reducing the amount of your own breast milk supply and may be difficult to reverse should you change your mind. Consider the financial and social implications when deciding on a feeding method for your baby.
Improper or unnecessary use of infant formula may affect the health of your baby, therefore, always prepare and use as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
