Our Preschool Storytimes include stories, songs, fingerplays, and action activities to encourage literacy. Each storytime ends with tie-in craft for kids to take home to remember the program.
Our storytimes are divided into two age groups since we design our programs to meet the particular development needs of each age. Two Year Old storytime lasts from 30-40 minutes. Three-Five Year Olds lasts for about 45 minutes.
All storytimes are free! No registration is required.
