On My Own Story Time: It's almost time to sign up!
Attention parents of four- and five-year-olds! Summer Reading may be over, but we're already preparing to dive right into our school year programming! One of our favorite programs is On My Own Story Time. This program is for kids ages four and five, and it's designed to help them learn school readiness skills. Children will participate in fun, curriculum-based activities all centered around stories, songs and crafts. They'll learn important literacy skills that will help them be ready to start school.
Additionally, unlike our regular PreSchool Story Time programs, children attend this program without their parents or caregivers. (Don't worry grown-ups, you get to hang out just outside the program room. You won't be far away!) It's excellent practice for kids to separate from their grown-ups and to experience something much closer to an independent classroom experience.
On My Own Story Time goes for 4 weeks, and we do ask that kids try to attend all 4 sessions. The program requires registration, and registration begins on Monday, August 27. You can register here at the library in-person, or you can call us at 617-972-6435.
This is a program you won't want to miss!
