Beginning in March, join us for Story Time at 10:30AM every Saturday! We will read books, sing songs, and play games. Sometimes we will play with scarves, rhythm instruments, and props as we learn about movement, sounds, and nursery rhymes. All ages are welcome and parents and caregivers are encouraged to join the fun!
Story Time activities support early literacy and foster a love of reading. Participating in activities such as Story Time contributes to learning, social skills, and school readiness.
