ALL ABOUT STORYTIME

Chicken reading to chicksStorytime is for children ages 3 - 5 years of age. Usually the child attends without an accompanying adult, but if the child wants or requires their adult to be present, that is fine. 


Storytime usually lasts approximately 1/2 hour and consists of stories, songs, craft and games.


It is important that the child be 3 years of age before attending Storytime because of the level of the activities. By the same token, children who are older than 5 will be beyond the level of the activities and be bored. 

As of fall 2013, Storytime scheduling will change. In the past, Storytime would meet for blocks of time, such as 6 weeks in a row, seasonally. There was a fall, winter, spring and summer session. Beginning September 3, 2013, Storytime will meet every-other week during the school year.  Storytime will not be held during school holidays or emergency days, such as snow days or other unexpected closures.

Storytime does require sign-up. This way adequate materials are available at craft time.
