Literacy Teaching Toolkit

The Literacy Teaching Toolkit provides practical advice about the learning and teaching of language and literacy skills from birth to the end of primary school.

1000 Books Before School

The 1000 Books Before School  program helps parents and carers make reading a regular part of their routine, so children read 1000 books before they start school.

The program is a great way to track a child's reading progress and work towards building important literacy skills. Parents and carers can register at participating local libraries, or the State Library of Victoria.
