For ages 6-24 months includes songs, fingerplays, and a story. The program lasts approximately twenty minutes. The purposes of this program are to provide early experience for children with the spoken word, provide a chance for parents/caregivers to share activities with children, and create enjoyment for all during story time. It is very helpful for the adults to model the activities by participating with their child.
Children up to age 5 and their parents/caregivers are invited to join us for stories, songs, and fingerplays. Story time is about 20-30 minutes.
