A library is an essential part of an early childcare setting. It provides children with an opportunity to listen to stories and poems, explore books and a variety of reading materials. The library area can include: a writing centre and listening area with story tapes for the children to listen to, felt boards and puppets. These materials along with storytelling by the teachers and children promote children's language and cognitive development.
The Library Area template is for a child's portfolio and consists of a typical interest area that you may have set-up in your service setting. It enables you to add 3 images of the child playing in the specific area as well as a description to accommodate the photos. It also has the benefits the child gains through playing within the interest area as well a tick box to Link to The Curriculum (Outcomes, Principles and Practices). The template also features a colour them and clip art images for that particular interest area.
This template is great to add to a Portfolio to help Parents understand that the library area benefits a child. It also includes:
- 3 images boxes
- Description box
- Check boxes for Outcomes, Principles and Practices
