Tips For a Successful Storytime
1. Please arrive early to allow time to get settled, go to the bathroom, etc. Storytimes for younger ones are only 20 minutes long, so all our time together is valuable.
2. Participate with your child! Children learn from watching. Feel free to sing and read along. Storytime is a chance to interact with books and the experience will be so much richer if you help your child participate.
3. Follow the age guidelines. Each program has been designed to be developmentally appropriate for the age-range listed. This doesn’t mean that older and younger siblings aren’t welcome, but when deciding which program to attend, refer to our descriptions to choose the program that’s best for your child’s age.
4. Minimize distractions. Please turn off all cell phones and tablets and save toys and snacks for after the program. Visiting with other parents is best saved for after storytime as well.
5. Keep reading! Check out the extra books provided to continue talking about each week’s theme. Asking questions and extending themes helps reinforce new information in your child’s mind. Kids love to tell you what they learned or what they remembered from story time!
