Deliveries of Bookstart Treasure packs

Bookstart Treasure envelopeThe Supporting Children Team deliver Bookstart Treasure packs to parents through early years settings.


What are Bookstart Treasure packs?

Bookstart is a programme run by Book Trust, a charity which is dedicated to encouraging people of all ages and cultures to engage with books. Their Bookstart Treasure pack is a gift for children aged three to four years old and contains a story book and a booklet full of tips for parents about sharing books together.

Who are they for?

The packs being delivered in 2017 are for children born between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2014.

Parents of older children who have missed out or eligible children who don't go to an early years setting, can order one from their local library. Parents may also be interested in our Read with me leaflets and How parents can help with reading web page.

Deliveries in 2017

We're emailing day nurseries, pre-schools and nursery classes of independent schools from Wednesday 24 May about deliveries. If you get an email from us, you'll need to submit this online order form to confirm your order by the end of Friday 9 June.

Wallington Cars and Couriers Ltd will contact you to arrange your delivery in the summer term. They won't have any extra stock with them so please make sure you give us the correct number of eligible children on your order form.

If you think you should be getting an email but haven't received it by Friday 2 June (and it's not in your junk folder) then drop us an email at bookstart@surreycc.gov.uk and we'll look into it for you.

Thank you so much for helping us to get these wonderful packs out to children and their families.
