All ages are welcome! Sing, stretch, dance, count, clap and create during our story and craft time! Little ones will explore a variety of circle songs, yoga stretches, finger rhymes, counting activities, movement stories and of course the very best books ever. A seasonally themed craft project exploring different materials will follow. Story time is excellent for helping children expand their language, listening and participation skills, supporting social emotional skills, creating a love of literacy and preparing for preschool!
Meet Courtney Gilardi, an educator with 26 years of teaching experience spanning early childhood to college and adult education.

She is currently writing a book on transforming early education through kindness, mindfulness, yoga, positive psychology, growth mindset and resiliency practices.
