Qatar National Library (QNL) recently organized a workshop entitled ‘Early Literacy 101’. The session was designed to provide educators and care-givers with a platform to discuss and exchange ideas about the importance of early literacy in childhood, from birth to age 4.
The event brought together over 40 attendees from a variety of organizations serving families and children in Qatar, including the Supreme Education Council, Qatar Museums, Qatar Academy, Maktaba, Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation Publishing, Dar Al-Kutub, and the Childhood Cultural Centre.
Additionally, QNL and Qatar Foundation, in collaboration with Occidental Petroleum of Qatar, recently organized the children’s event, ‘Down by the Sea’, which brought together more than 500 children and their families.
The sea-themed event included exciting educational and entertaining activities such as storytelling, fun games, and sea crafts. Through these activities, children between 4 and 11 years of age learned about the vast flora and fauna under the sea and ways of protecting the marine environment.
