Reading Ready! Early Life Storytime
Please bring the family for an interactive storytime, where we’ll focus on early literacy skills, socio-emotional learning, and engaging experiences in 4/5-week, themed segments. You can find those themes via our event calendar descriptions, updated bimonthly. The stories and activities are carefully selected for ages 2-5 (toddler to early pre-school).
Inviting all homeschool families. Please bring your family for family-oriented, fun, educational activities that encourage real-life knowledge and skills, inspire your child’s interest in something new, and nurture a love of learning!
Join us for building on the third Tuesday, every month. There are multiple challenges to choose from (that are changed each month to reflect a relevant topic) or you can come and free build. Your options are endless!
