Story Time

About

Story Time develops important pre-literacy skills including vocabulary, print awareness, narrative skills, print motivation, phonological awareness, and letter knowledge. Our programs combine these tools with the Five Simple Practices: talking, reading, singing, writing, and playing.

Summer Story Time Session runs from June 12 – July 29.
No registration is required. Enjoy a drop-in summer!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can we just drop in at any time?
    Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to take care of necessities (bathroom visits, finding name tags, etc.).
  • Can we bring food, drinks or toys?
    We don’t recommend opening snacks or bringing toys from home. This can be distracting.
  • Is my child required to participate?
    We encourage all children to participate. Regular attendance will help them become more familiar with the routine and feel more comfortable joining in.
  • Am I required to participate?
    Parent participation is key in Babytime and Tales for Twos and Threes. When you join in for songs and rhymes, your participation encourages your child’s, and helps in literacy development. Please silence cell phones and refrain from socializing until afterwards.
  • Does my child need to stay next to me the whole time?
    While we know it’s impossible to keep a young child still for very long, we also need the focus to be on the program/presenter. If your child is very unsettled or distressed, exiting the room can give them “time out” to settle down without disturbing others. You’re always welcome to return!
