Because story times model positive family engagement…
Preschool Time at the Library
With our Toddler Time story telling sessions at the library, your child will experience literature through interactive play, games, music, and more! Also during these unique storytelling sessions with your child, you will have the opportunity to get involved in assisting your child with the activities, which can also be played at home for a fun family learning activity.
This program is encouraged for kids ages 3 to 5 years. Caregivers and grandparents are welcome to bring older siblings if necessary.
How does my child benefit from Story Times?
While Preschool Time is an exciting, interactive activity for both kids and their adults, there are quite a lot of developmental benefits that stem from storytelling during adolescence. Through simple group activities, your child is learning social skills, listening skills, early STEM concepts, and so much more.
The National Association for Education of Young Children (NAEYC) says that reading aloud is important for children of all ages. Read this NAEYC article for more information about the additional benefits of storytelling. Also, if you would like to get your child involved in reading at home, check out these book lists of Informational Books, Picture Books, and Nutrition Books.
