Our Music Time is a great way to introduce your child to language skills in a positive and fun environment. With slightly more songs, activities and movement than our lap times, children and their grownups are encouraged to engage with the books and songs and to actively participate in the program.  This 20-30 minute story time is full of books, songs, rhymes and finger plays for children ages two to five years old. Children should be able to follow one and two step directions in order to fully participate in this story time.
