Every Day's a Story Day - Pledge Your Support Below
Early Years Scotland strongly believes in the value of storytelling.
We believe that from the very earliest days of a child's life, hearing, seeing, watching and telling stories can have a powerful and long lasting positive influence for children.
That's why we've launched our campaign for every child in Scotland to have a story every day from birth.
Stories support children to:
- Have an equal and excellent start in life
- Build strong and supportive relationships
- Enrich and enhance language and literacy
- Develop thinking and problem-solving skills
- Foster a love of books and stories from the earliest years
- Step into new worlds and other cultures
How can you support the campaign?
We would be delighted if you - children, parents, carers and staff in all early years settings, primary schools, colleges and universities - pledge your support by signing up to support the campaign.
You can be a...
EYS Story Star – children who love stories.
EYS Story Setting – all settings that pledge to ensure that children have a story every day.
EYS Story Supporter – Parents/Carers who want their child to hear a story every single day.
In return for pledging your support, every Star, Setting, and Supporter will receive a personalised certificate. Your support will also be displayed on our Story Scroll.
The wonder of storytelling
We often associate storytelling with books which are a wonderful gateway to wonder and discovery. Made-up stories, and stories shared through film, puppets, audio, play-acting, to name but a few, also create so many special memories and bring countless benefits for children.
The campaign is being supported by a growing list of well-known Story Champions, all of whom share our aspiration that every day's a story day for every child in Scotland.
