Sandwell libraries teamed up with Cornerstone Nursery in Rowley Regis to organise a pyjama party for parents and pre-school age children.
Parents and children came along to the nursery with many dressed in pyjamas to enjoy some bed-time themed story books read to them by Sam Lavender who works for Sandwell Libraries.
Children and parents also sang songs accompanied by talented Silvia Sermon, Cornerstone Nursery Deputy Manager, on her guitar.
Silvia is thrilled the nursery has such great links with Sandwell Libraries. She said: “We know how important it is to get children and parents to read together and many of our families visit the library regularly.
“We are very fortunate to have support from staff at our local library in Blackheath and the children and parents very much enjoyed our pyjama party.”
The pre-school, based at The Flame Community Church in Cardale Street, has organised various activities designed to improve children’s literacy skills and get them ready to start school.
They also took part in a project called “Raising Early Achievement in Literacy (REAL)”. The nursery organised home visits and sessions at Cornerstone nursery designed to encourage parents and carers to read more with their children, learn new rhymes together and do more writing and drawing.
