** Please Note **

During the COVID-19 pandemic much of our programming has been moved to a virtual format, some has been temporarily suspended.

 

Story Time

Online Story Time

These videos are geared towards children ages 2-5, however the content is suitable for children young and old.

The songs, rhymes, and stories in these videos are chosen not only for fun but also the way they contribute to the growth and development of young brains and bodies.

Have fun & be silly!

 

 

Rhyme Time

Rhyme Time Videos

Play with your babies and toddlers with these songs and rhymes.

  • Recommended for ages 0-3 with an adult, or a great way for older siblings to safely interact with a baby
  • Rhymes, songs, and stories to promote pre-literacy skills and oral language development
  • Caregivers will interact with the children while singing, rhyming, and doing actions
