A Program for Children Ages 2-5
Preschool Story Time is designed to introduce children to books and activities that encourage them to explore and understand the wider world, to assert their independence in acceptable words and ways, and to appreciate their own creativity.
In Preschool Story Time we…
- Share age-appropriate books and stories.
More sophisticated stories build on a child’s growing vocabulary and knowledge of the world around him or her.
- Use music and movement.
These activities foster physical coordination and develop the ability to hear the different sounds in words through rhythm.
- Extend the story.
Activities and take-home crafts will spark conversations, refine motor skills, and provide opportunities for creative expression.
Socially acceptable behaviors such as taking turns, following instructions, and focusing attention help prepare children for later school experience.
