Guidelines and Tips for Storytime
Allow you and your little one time to hang up your coats and get ready for storytime. Storytimes start promptly at their scheduled time. Once the door is closed, do not enter the storyroom.
Visit the Bathroom
Leave enough time for a trip to the bathroom before storytime begins. Preschoolers who need to use the restroom during their storytime will not be allowed to re-enter.
Prepare for Preschool Time
Preschool Time is an independent storytime for children ages 3 to 5 years old. Prepare your child (and yourself) to attend without an adult. If your child isn't ready to attend alone, please consider Family Fun.
Young children like to explore but they should not prevent others from enjoying their storytime. Please help encourage positive behaviors like good listening, following directions and being respectful of people and things in the story room. Your involvement in storytime is a great way to model these behaviors!
Courtesy to All
Please silence your cell phones at the beginning of storytime. Nothing ruins a good story like a ringtone, no matter how catchy the tune. Also your child should leave any of his/her stuffed friends and toys outside the story room. Please do not bring snacks to storytime, as this may become a distraction to other children.
Storytime at Home
We emphasize literacy in all of our programs, often through playful activities. Children learn through play, so think of this as your 30 minutes a week to pick up fun new activities to try together at home.
