Storytimes are a great way to bond with your child while introducing them to crucial learning concepts such as phonological awareness, rhyme, letter recognition and most of all…Reading as a fun and engaging activity!

It is never too early to start,
“By the age of 2, children who are read to regularly display greater language comprehension, larger vocabularies, and higher cognitive skills than their peers.” Raikes, et al. Child Development, 2016.

Movers and Shakers:
Wednesdays 10:30-11:00 am
(best for children 2 and younger)
In this Storytime, we explore the six foundations of Early Literacy; Read, Write, Sing, Talk and Play, using books, songs and rhymes. Bubbles, toys, and puppets are given after the stories are read to provide fun and enriching opportunities for you and your child to bond and learn together.

Read, Play, Grow:
Thursdays 10:30-11:15 a.m.
(best for children 2 1/2 and older)
In Read, Play, Grow, we use stories, songs and activities to enhance your child’s ability to recognize, comprehend, and follow words, sentences and story-lines. Attending this Storytime before your child enters kindergarten ensures that your child has the Early Literacy skills they need to succeed. A craft is introduced each week to help develop fine and gross motor skills, and to enhance artistic expression.
