Family Fun at Loch Lomond Shores on the Play Talk Read Bus
Young children and their parents are invited to climb on board the PlayTalkRead bus named ‘Benji’ when it visits Loch Lomond Shores on Thursday 24th April, from 9.30am to 4pm.
Designed to help encourage parents and carers to play, talk and read more with their little ones, the bus - affectionately known as Benji - will be stopping at Loch Lomond Shores on Thursday 24th April.
Giving parents and carers of 0 – 3 year olds the chance to hop on board, inside there’s ample opportunity for all types of fun with books, toys and interactive storytelling as well as song, rhythm and rhyme sessions.
The PlayTalkRead roadshow, which is part of the Scottish Government’s Early Years campaign, aims to encourage parents and carers throughout Scotland to have fun and learn with their children from day one.
Minister for Children and Young People, Aileen Campbell said:
“We can never underestimate the power of play and its crucial role in the positive development of our children. The first three years in a child’s life are critical to their development. Our PlayTalkRead bus offers free fun for parents and carers of tots, to help give them the very best start in life. The good news for mums and dads is you don’t have to wait until your kids are bigger to do fun things together. There are lots of opportunities to get out there and have simple fun every day for little cost.”
Clare Gemmell, Loch Lomond Shores Manager, said:
“We’re really looking forward to welcoming lots of mums, dads, grandparents, carers and their little ones on board the bus at Loch Lomond Shores. This is a fantastic campaign that we fully support and we are delighted that it’s coming in to the heart of the community.”
