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 will run from Monday, June 11 to Saturday, July 28.
All summer story times are drop-in. No registration required.

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?
    We don’t recommend opening snacks or bringing toys into the room. 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, Tales for Twos, and Totally Threes. 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?
    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!
