Toddler TimeToddler Time is typically held on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month at 10AM.  This toddler storytime is  designed for ages 12 to 36 months* and involves the parent/caregiver as well as the child.  Early learning skills are emphasized through songs, rhymes, movement and short stories.  We realize that  children at these ages are just learning to participate in group    activities and that their attention spans are rather short.  Toddler Time is designed with these things in mind, and we expect that toddlers will roam a bit and need to be redirected frequently. 

* Older  siblings are welcome!
