Raised so far
The early years are critical for brain development and will have a profound impact on the next 80 years.
A healthy and positive start to life provides the foundation for all future learning, behaviour and health. Exposure to books is an essential developmental building block for children 0-5.
That’s why we continue to focus on early literacy to ensure all children have the best chance to thrive.
The Dolly Parton Imagination Library is the ideal resource to foster reading in the home which is essential to start school ready to learn.
- 95% of preschool teachers said children who received the Imagination Library increased their vocabulary, which is a critical skill required for learning.
Donating $10 to the Imagination Library will help United Way provide books to Australian children ensuring they start school ready to read, learn and succeed.
