Storytime for 3 - 5 year olds

10:00am

Monday morning storytime!

Children will enjoy stories, games, songs, and crafts related to the clothes we wear. The session runs 5 weeks.

Each storytime includes about 30 minutes of stories, finger-plays, songs and games related to that week’s theme, followed by a craft project and a snack; the total storytime runs approximately 60 minutes.

This program is crafted specifically for the attention span and interest level of 3-5 year olds. If your child is younger than 3 or may not be up for sitting and listening to 4-5 stories with 1-2 song or game breaks in between, you may want to consider our storytime for 2-3 year olds, which runs on Wednedays at 10am, or our Kangaroo Time program, which runs on Fridays at 9:30am.  If your child is in elementary school, you may also consider our afterschool program for 5-8 year olds on Thurdsay afternoons at 4:15pm
