Toddler Time

Toddler Story Time is for kids ages 10 months to 2 years. It is a “lap-sit” program. Books geared for infants to 2 years of age are used, with bright pictures, rhyme and rhythm. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to participate by lifting their kids’ arms, tickling tummies and blowing bellies — hugs are a must!
