Toddler Time

Toddler Story Time is for children aged newborn to toddler. 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! This is not a stand up program, but if kids need to stand up, they can do so.
