The research project will evaluate the impact of the Better Beginnings Sing With Me program developed by the
State Library of WA (SLWA) as part of a suite of Better Beginnings programs. Sing With Me was introduced by the SLWA as a pilot program in 2016, aimed at two year olds and their parents, available at participating libraries. The Sing With Me program introduces children to developmentally appropriate books and language activities; supports parents as their child's first teacher; raises awareness of the value of reading together; and links families to the range of free services available at their local library. The evaluation will involve qualitative and quantitive methodology involving librarians, parents/carers, program partners and stakeholders involved in the development and implementation of Sing With Me.
The aim of the research is to:
