Preschool Story Time

Throughout this story time, preschoolers enjoy stories and songs that develop early literacy skills and foster curiosity. This program is reserved for children ages three to five who can sit on their own and comfortably participate in a variety of literature based activities geared towards preparing children for learning to read. Asking preschoolers to attend without their caregivers helps to develop a sense of independence that will be needed as they start school.
