Selly Oak Nursery continue to promote a love of reading following Birmingham's Year of Reading. Reading continues to be a high priority at Nursery.
Research has shown on average children in Birmingham have less than 10 books at home. They have found that children in Birmingham are 7 years behind the average reading age for the UK.
Learning about reading means the ability to share, interpret, observe and understand the way in which different people and communities use reading in diverse ways for different purposes.
Selly Oak Nursery School ensures that:
1) Every child will own a book (Nursery will give every child a book)
2) Every child will take part in World Book Day celebrations in March
We promote joining the local libraries amongst parents.
