Under 5's

Over 10% of the Roxby Downs population is made up of children under 5 years of age (2016, Census), compared to 5.5% for Regional SA.  The young age structure of Roxby Downs is an indicator of demand for services and programs for children and youth.  As such the Roxby Downs Council and community groups have developed a number of key ongoing programs.

Toddler Storytime

Tuesdays and Fridays (repeat session) at 9:30am in the Community Library.  Toddler Storytime includes a combination of singing, dancing, craft time and storytelling.

Research confirms reading to children just 10 minutes each day strengthens literacy, models positive reading behaviour, and builds children’s self-esteem about reading.

Toddler Storytime is a partnership between the Roxby Downs 'Strengthening our Families' program and the Library.

Bookings are not required.
