Storytime uses children’s literature to ignite the imagination. Kids gather round at the start of class for a reading which sets the theme for the day. But Storytime isn’t just about fostering a love of books and literacy in children it’s about creating connections and providing a rich curriculum that fosters the imagination and brings that story to life in an engaging way. Kids explore food, crafts and the senses through sensory and imaginative play.
December brings the holidays and when I was a kid the holidays went hand in and with baking, decorating, crafts and of course some of my favorite stories. Join us this month as we celebrate the holidays with wintertime favorites your kids are sure to love!

As always Drop-off is optional with our classes, optional which means busy parents and caregivers can get their shopping done, meet a friend for lunch in the Cafe, or simply run some errands. Classes are geared towards children ages 3-6.
We look forward to seeing you in class soon!
