Pre-K Tech will be offered Thursday, December 5th and Tuesday, December 17th. This 30 minute program is a fun way for children ages 2 – 5 and their parents/caregivers to learn some fun and education programs. We will begin by watching a Tumblebook before learning about some apps and playing on our iPads.
PJ Preschool Story Time will be held on Wednesday, December 4th and Wednesday, December 18th from 6:30 – 7 p.m.. Join Linda as she reads a few stories and we sing some songs. Come dressed in your jammies if you wish- Linda does!
Our popular Music for Munchkins program will be on Tuesday, December 3rd and also on Thursday, December 19th at 10:30-11:00. If you are between the ages of 0-5 years old come join Miss Jen as she lets you explore instruments, sing songs and finish off with parachute play. It’s a good way for kids to express themselves and have some good ol’ fun!
A brief rundown of our weekly programs:
Lap Sit is on Wednesday mornings 9:30-10:00- this is our first introduction to someone else reading to your child ages 0-18 months. It is a fun parent/child time together.
Toddler Story Time is for those 18 months to about 3 years old. We sing songs and read books. It is on Fridays 9:30-10:00. The stories are short like their attention span.
Preschool Story Time is on Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:30-10:15. We have a theme with our books then make a craft project to tie it all together. Every session is different so come to both. This is for those who are getting ready for preschool or kindergarten.
*We do not have a sign up for these programs- just show up for some fun. All of our story times require the parent/caregiver to be present- we have had dads join us and we encourage it!
