Program description:

Connected Libraries and City of Greater Dandenong Libraries worked together with Monash Health to deliver engaging and relevant information on mental health, wellbeing and nutrition to young children and their carers via established programs including Baby Time, Tinies’ Time and Storytime. Storytime kits were developed as part of the Parent/Carer-Child Health and Wellbeing Project pilot program, initiated in May 2021 with funding from the 2021 Libraries for Health and Wellbeing Innovation Grant.

Program Objectives

The program objective is improved health outcomes for young children and their carers in the outer South East Metropolitan region and to Victoria more broadly after the initial project roll-out.
