Your child will enjoy a range of songs and stories, while developing their language and literacy skills.

Libraries are becoming more popular with parents of babies and toddlers. This is because they offer a range of fantastic free lessons and experiences for children.

The area of Adelaide which you live is dependent on the name of the class. For example, if you live in the Port Adelaide Enfield area, the classes are called Baby Bounce. Other names of these classes include: Baby Rhyme Time and Wiggle Giggle Read.

These classes are usually 30 minutes long, and involve singing popular nursery rhymes (with and without music), while playing with musical instruments and scarves. There is also time allocated for parents to read books to their children. After all the singing and reading, there may also be a fun surprise at the end, to reward the children for their co-operation and concentration.

What are the benefits of these classes?

Early language and literacy development for infants and toddlers. Yes, infants are already learning how to read and speak, by listening to you talking to them, singing, noise on the radio, or television. Looking at pictures in books and photographs is considered pre-literacy.

Gross and fine motor skills. The use of musical instruments and scarves will develop your child's fine motor hand grasp. The movement of their arms when using the objects will strengthen their muscles and gross motor development.

Socialising. While your infant is not in the interacting stage, being around unfamiliar faces is beneficial in developing their social development, and sense of self (feeling comfortable in unfamiliar environments).

Baby Bounce, Baby Rhyme Time, and Wiggle Giggle Read are for infants and toddlers up to 2 years of age. Click here to find your nearest class.
