Baby Time

Baby Time is geared towards children 0-18 months old. This program focuses on the caregiver and child interaction incorporating fingerplays, rhymes, songs, lap bounces, scarves, and board books. This storytime is followed by optional socializing and play time, and free coffee and tea is provided for the adults.

Toddler Time builds off Baby Time, but increases the amount of movement. There will be music, movement, books, and fun!

Every Thursday, there is 3’s, 4’s, & 5’s. This program is ideal for children 3-5 years old. The storytime is longer, and involves more movements, games, and picture books. At the end of each storytime, there is a hands-on activity or craft related to the week’s theme.
