First Five Forever - A Logan City Council Initiative

 

Did you know that that up to 90% of a child’s brain development happens in the first 5 years?

Sharing stories, rhymes, singing, talking and playing with your child from birth builds a foundation for your child’s future development that can last a lifetime. Our First Five Forever sessions are run by members of the Logan City Council, in cooperation with LVSS Staff, and are designed to share skills with parents and carers of infants and small children in a friendly, structured environment.

We all want Queensland children to have the best opportunities in life and have the greatest chance to succeed. Current research shows the valuable role parents and caregivers’ have in supporting their child’s early development. First 5 Forever aims to provide strong emergent literacy foundations and life-long learning capabilities for all Queensland children 0-5 years, by directly supporting parents and primary caregivers as their child’s first and most important educator.

Let’s work together as a community to support each other and build on the endless opportunities families have daily to interact with their children and provide opportunities for learning. This means spending time in the early years talking, playing and reading with our children so their growing brains get what they need!

Our First Five Forever sessions are run in the Library Annex every Tuesday from 9am to 10.30am. If you have any questions about our First Five Forever sessions, feel free to contact our F5F Representative Cathy Lindemann through cathylindemann@logan.qld.gov.au
