Story Times



Babygarten Story Time

Suggested for children ages 0-2. We welcome parents and caregivers of infants and toddlers to come sing songs, and popular nursery rhymes, together! A simple story geared towards the children's age group will be read aloud. Physical interaction is extremely important in the early stages of child development, and this story time not only encourages adult/child interaction, but also builds the healthy habit of reading aloud to your child. Due to the short attention spans of this young age group, this story time will last about 20 minutes, with time for caregivers to socialize together afterwards while children play with toys that are provided. Story time begins promptly every Tuesday at 10:30 AM!
