Become a Duffy Ready for Reading Centre

Welcome aboard!

We'd love your Early Childhood Education (ECE) centre to become one of over 280 centres already taking part in this exciting programme.

Being a Duffy Ready for Reading centre means more than just handing out books to children. Our centres play an active part in fostering a love of books and reading in their children - preparing them to experience a lifetime of reading pleasure. Each centre appoints a Duffy Coordinator who will drive the programme and coordinate a variety of events throughout the year. These include:

  • Distributing and collating book order forms
  • Organising Book Offer celebrations to present books 




There a few simple criteria to meet to become part of the R4R programme:

  • Your centre must be chartered or registered.
  • The centre must have an equity funding index between 1 and 4 OR feed into Duffy schools in the area.
  • Your centre will be able to pay a small contrubution towards the cost of books - this is currently equivalent to $6.96 plus GST per child, per year for a total of four books per child.
  • You will have a staff member who will have a passion for the programme and will want to become the centre's ‘Duffy Coordinator'.
  • Applications must be received by the last Friday of October to be eligible to join the programme in the following year.
