First 5 forever

First 5 forever logo

The first 5 forever program aims to provide strong early literacy foundations for all children zero to five years by directly supporting parents and primary Caregivers as their child’s most important educator.

Up to 90% of a child’s brain development happens in the first five years. The more you talk, read, sing and play with your child the more their brain responds. 

A great start in life

A great start in life starts with you. In the first years of life, your child’s brain develops faster than any other stage. During this time, the simple things you do together each day can have an enormous impact.


Talk, read, sing and play

Sharing stories, rhymes, singing, talking and playing with your child from birth builds a foundation for your child’s future development that can last a lifetime.
