Early Years Programs Are Back!
Our libraries take a break from hosting Rhymetime and Storytime sessions during school holidays so that we can focus on bringing you exciting and fresh events.
With Term 1 starting on Monday, January 29, our early years programs will be resuming at the same time!
What is Rhymetime?
Rhymetime is best suited to children in the crawling stage of development. Our librarians and volunteers aim to provide you, the parents, with valuable tools to continue language and communication skills from home while providing an entertaining and educational half hour to you and your children.
We sing songs and nursery rhymes, read stories and play instruments that overall develop gross and fine motor function, cognitive thinking, and language and communication skills.
What is Storytime?
Storytime is best suited to children in the walking and talking stage of development. Our librarians and volunteers target fine communication and language skills by picking stories to develop certain phonetics.
The storytelling nature of Storytime increases your child’s imaginative thinking, and when paired with our staff’s back and forth communication throughout the story, develops their language and communication skills.
