Baby Time green 07-2015

Mondays, 9:30 t0 10:15 a.m.

Fall Session: September 18th to December 4th (except Oct 9th)

Baby Time is a group experience for parents or caregivers and their children from infancy up to about 18 months.

The program focuses on learning rhymes, songs, stories and finger plays to share together. Some easy signing is also introduced to assist  pre-verbal children to communicate.

These activities stimulate a child’s developing brain and are an important first step toward enhanced literacy and cognitive abilities.

Baby Time is also a unique opportunity for parents and caregivers to develop a valuable ‘tool kit’ of activities to use with their children.

At 18 months, children progress to Toddler Time.

While the program is geared to newborn to 18 month old children, parents can choose whether Baby Time or Toddler Time works best for them and their child. Siblings are welcome to attend. If you have more than one child under age 3, come to the group that suits you best or come to both!

Story Time for preschoolers is on Wednesdays from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m.

~~~~~

Sessions are free, drop-in and open to all parents and caregivers of young children.

Also, watch for other children’s programs and events throughout the year.

Summer Reading Club runs during the summer months in July and August.

Lego Time runs all year on Thursdays from 3:00 to 4:30.

All programs are drop-in and free-of-charge unless otherwise noted.

Tuesdays, 10:45 t0 11:30 a.m.

Fall Session: September 19th to December 5th

Toddler Time continues the steps begun in Baby Time.

It is geared toward toddlers in the 18 to 36 month age group.

Children at this age usually begin to take a more active role in the activities and will
often request favourite rhymes and songs they have learned.

They also develop social skills and deepen connections with the other children.

At the same time, the adults can enjoy meeting and spending time with other parents of young children.

 Story Time green 08-2015

Wednesdays, 10:00 t0 11:00 a.m.

Fall Session: September 20th to December 6th

Introduce your preschool aged child to books and the library through the magic of Story Time.

Children not only love stories but listening to stories and rhymes are important early steps toward literacy.

Story Time activities provide an engaging introduction to the written word that will encourage a lifelong love
of books, reading and learning.

It is also a great way to familiarize your child with the library.

Songs, action rhymes and finger plays enhance learning while getting children up and moving together.

Motor, social, and language skills blossom in a fun, safe environment.

Though the programmed is geared mainly to 3 to 6-year-olds, all young children, including siblings, are welcome to attend.
Parents can enjoy the stories with their children or to relax in the reading area.

Younger children may enjoy Baby Time or Toddler Time.

 

Sessions are free, drop-in and open to all parents and caregivers of young children.

Also, watch for other children’s programs and events throughout the year.

Summer Reading Club runs during the summer months in July and August.
