Classes will be held on Thursdays for beginners & Saturdays for intermediates.
These 20-to-30-minute story times are full of books, songs, rhymes and finger plays for children from birth to 2 years old. Our Baby and Toddler Story Time is a great way to introduce your child to language skills in a positive and fun environment. With slightly more activity 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.
