Story Telling in Early Childhood

At Dragonfly's Early Learning at Coolum Beach, we know that children love to be read to, no matter what their age.

You can start reading to your child as early as you would like to. Even though children may be so tiny and not yet talking and you think that perhaps they can't understand, they love to be snuggled up in Mum or Dad's arms listening to the soothing rhythm of a voice. They find it very comforting and is the beginning of a bonding experience.


This too, is why some children ask for the same story to be read over and over again. The story obviously releases some feelings of comfort and they wish to experience that over and over again


Vital connections in the brain are made very early in life. Reading is the most effective way to build "language" connections in the brain. Even really tiny children love the experience


Just look at these little ones! So small but you can see that they are mesmerised!!!
