First 5 Forever is about working together as a community to spend time with our babies and children talking, reading, singing and playing. This universal family literacy program aims at creating stronger language and literacy environments for Queensland children before they start kindergarten or school.
First 5 Forever is an initiative of the Queensland State Government.
SPEAK (Speaking Promotes Education And Knowledge) provides lots of fun, free activities, ideas and information for parents, carers and educators to support and nurture language development in children from 0-6 years of age.
