Story Hours & Crafts
Story time helps parents foster a lifelong love of books and reading in their children. Story time is not only fun for children, but also informative and engaging for the parents who attend with them. Children benefit from hearing another adult read to them, from watching other children get engaged in a story, and from being exposed to a wide variety of authors and writing styles. Your child will also learn some essential school readiness skills, like how to sit still for an extended period of time, how to pay attention to an adult other than his parents, how to take turns, and how to be (reasonably) quiet in a public place.
Stories, music, dance and playgroup activities for 2-4 year olds will be held on the first three Wednesdays of each month at 10:30 a.m. in the Peck Room.
Parents must accompany their children.
Crafts are important to children because they improve learning so many ways. Besides the enjoyment children get, crafting stimulates their imagination, helps them learn new skills, teaches them to keep trying and can improve fine motor skills. Crafting also helps children with STEM activities because many craft activities help kids to develop early math and creative problem-solving skills.
Craft workshops are held once a month during the school year usually at 4:00 PM and weekly during summer vacation at 2:30. Check the events calendar for specific dates and projects.
