Join the Child and Youth Network at the London Children’s Museum on Saturday, November 22 from 10 am – 5 pm for the launch of their exciting new literacy awareness campaign, It All Starts with WORDS! Admission to the museum is FREE all day. There will be a special presentation at 11 am to celebrate a whole new way to play with words!
Research has shown that the number of words a child hears before the age of 3 has a profound impact on language development and on future academic success. Aim to share 2000 words per hour to help your child learn and grow. It’s easier than you think!
Check out thisisliteracy.ca for fun activities to help you reach your goal.
