Preschool Explorers

We're really excited to start a new preschool program this fall. Its totally different from any other program we've ever offered. Its designed for the 2 1/2 - 5 year old. Sensory and science stations will be set up around the room where you and your child will have the opportunity to spend a half hour playing,observing and exploring.  We will get messy sometimes so dress appropriate. The program is Wednesdays at 11:15 am starting September 3.

Storytime Shake-up

We are shaking up the times and days of our weekly storytimes. Starting in September, the Pat-a-Cake Infant program will be on Tuesdays at 10:15 and 11:15 AM and the Toddler Time will be on Thursdays at 10:15 and 11:15 AM. There will not be a toddler program on Wednesday but, we will be offering a new pre-school program at 11:15 AM that includes science and sensory activities. The regular preschool storytime will be at 10:15 AM . If it all sounds a bit confusing give us a call or stop by for a monthly schedule of events. You don't want to miss a thing.
