About storytimes

Storytime classes help children acquire pre-literacy skills in fun, age-appropriate ways through the Very Ready Reading Program and process. This research-based program lays the foundation for future reading skills by encouraging caregivers to share books, songs, stories, words, rhymes, sounds, and play.

  • Family Playgroups: For children of all ages. Hands-on pre-literacy activities for you to share with your child. 
  • Sensory Storytime: This class is designed for children with special needs ages 3 and up with caregiver support. Classes are structured with Boardmaker schedules and include fun picture books and songs, along with fine and gross motor movement activities. Special supports like lap weights and fidget toys are available to help children be successful. Siblings welcome.
  • Shake, Rattle & Read: This energetic program is designed for children of all ages, with caregiver support. The importance of music and movement in pre-literacy is emphasized in this program that will get everyone up on their feet and singing with loud enthusiasm. 
  • Young & Restless: This class is designed for one-on-one interactions between caregivers and children birth to 24 months. Short books paired with songs and rhymes that are modeled to introduce pre-literacy skills. Walkers love to wander and listen while they explore, and caregivers can help them participate while on the move. Babies learn to associate books with fun and shared moments with their favorite adults.
