As part of the First 5 Forever literacy program, council’s Sunshine Coast Libraries invites parents and toddlers to join free Music to Grow sessions at a library near you during October, November and December.

Community Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said it was well documented that talking, reading, singing and playing with your child from birth is instrumental in building the foundational skills they need for future learning.  

“Our wonderful libraries have developed interactive Kindermusik sessions presented by Music2Grow which allows parents and their little ones to sing, dance, play instruments and have valuable quality time together,” Cr McKay said.

“Parents will also be able to take home ideas and resources to help them to effectively incorporate music at home.”

 First 5 Forever is a universal family literacy program aimed at supporting stronger language and literacy environments for young children from 0–5 years and their families. The program is funded by the Queensland State Government and is being delivered by 320 public libraries across Queensland.
