Story-and-Play for 2-3 year olds

10:00am

This winter we will enjoy stories, games, songs, and crafts about sea creatures. The 45 minute storytime includes 15 minutes for free play, 15 minutes of stories, fingerplays & songs, and 15 minutes of craft and snacktime. The session runs 6 weeks, weather permitting. 

This program is crafted specifically for the attention span and interest level of toddlers. If your child is older than 3 or has a greater capacity for sitting and listening to stories you may want to consider our storytime for 3-5 year olds, which runs on Mondays at 10am.

Ready-To-Read Storytime for 5 - 8 year olds

4:00pm

Children who have entered grade school journey towards being readers, but they still love listening to stories! This program is designed to support your emergent reader by sharing a sample of stories & series that are geared toward various levels of early readers, & get them excited to use their new reading skills on the sequels later. Stories are followed by a craft, and we finish up the 60 minute session with a snack.
