Fall 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 recommended by the Every Child Ready to Read Organization: talking, reading, singing, writing, and playing.

Our Fall Story Time Session One runs from September 9th to October 19th. Registration begins on August 8th.

Fall Story Time Session Two runs from October 28th to December 7th. Registration begins on September 28th.

Register here unless noted.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can we just drop in at any time?
    Our story times are carefully designed to provide your child with continuity and structure, so we ask that you arrive 5-10 minutes before the start time.
  • Can we bring food, drinks, or toys?
    No food is permitted anywhere in our children’s area and drinks must be covered. We don’t recommend bringing toys into the room, as it can be distracting.
  • Is my child required to participate?
    We encourage all children to participate but don’t require it. 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, Tales for Twos, and Totally Threes. Your participation encourages your child’s, and helps in literacy development. We ask that you please silence cell phones and refrain from socializing until afterwards.
  • Does my child need to stay next to me the whole time?
    No, our story times are filled with movement and music, and children are encouraged to actively participate. That said, if your child is very unsettled or distressed, exiting the room can give them the time they need to settle down without disturbing others. You are always welcome to return!
