I hope that you and your child will be able to join me on one of the following dates for my Toddler or Preschool Storytime programs. We use various types of books, finger plays, rhymes, songs and developmentally appropriate activities to help create a strong foundation in early literacy which is extremely important in the development of every child. This will be a great time to share in new discoveries with your child and meet new friends as well! I am looking forward to seeing you at one of my programs!
This workshop focuses on your projects, in your own way and in your own time. You can do anything you can bring the setup for – materials and supplies. You will receive support and help from students and teacher, and learn how to work more creatively and effectively toward your own goals. Open to the public, but please sign on in the library with subject (if possible) and which form of art you are pursuing.
