______________________________________________________storytime

All children from newborn to 5 years of age are invited to join in the fun every Tuesday morning from 10 am to 11 am. (Moms, Dads and caregivers are also welcome.

Join Diane and Lorraine as they read 2 stories, one in English and one in French. They will then lead the children in a craft time and then will offer the children a snack of juice and crackers.

According to experts who work in the field it is important for children as young as infants to hear the words and see the pictures in books to aid in their language and literacy skills as they get older.

After Story Time, caregivers and children are invited to choose some books that can be read to the children at home.

Every Tuesday from 10 am to 11 am
