Read, Sing, Talk, Play, Write; repeat!
Every Story Time includes stories, music, finger plays, flannel board stories, movement activities and puppets that enhance early literacy skills. Stories are chosen with preschool children in mind, but families with children of all ages are welcome to attend; we believe you are never too old or too young to be read to! Story Time concludes with a simple process-based art project.
A child’s brain develops faster during the early years and, like a sponge, soaks up information willingly and with great enthusiasm. That’s why it is remarkably important to begin reading aloud to your child from a very early age!

Story Time Etiquette
Please arrive on time.
Discuss polite and respectful manners with your children before arriving.
Be attentive and participate in the program; children are more likely to sing along and have fun if you are doing the same. Visit with friends after Story Time is over.
We do not expect silent, rapt attention; in fact, it is NOT developmentally appropriate for a 0- to 3-year-old child to listen quietly for the whole session. That’s OK.
If your Story Time child wanders or becomes too restless, please leave the room with him/her. Simply return when he or she has had a pleasant rest or appropriate run-around in the youth area.
