Who should attend our Infant Time?

So many story times which one to attend?  The following guidelines may help you with your choice.  We start the week with the 10 am Lapsit on Tuesdays.  Better known as the Mother Goose story time because it is presented to babies from birth to 18 months possible up to 2 yrs of age.  We encourage the mothers to hold their infants in their laps while singing and moving the babies to the songs.  Fingerplays are learned so mom and infant may interact with each other.  We also present books.  Sturdy board books.  This type of book is easy for the infant to hold and more important easy to clean or wipe off.  At the end of the storytime presentation, the infants are allowed to play with age appropriate toys while moms talk amongst each other and compare progress and work out problems they may be having with their little ones.  So bring you infant and attend the Infant time on Tuesdays at 10 am for the year round story time.  Check our
