Family Storytime in the Garden

Family Storytime is perfect for preschoolers but fun for the whole family! Learn (or relearn!) favorite songs & rhymes and enjoy a few stories each week. This program meets every Thursday at 10:30am with Miss Alyisha in the Queset Garden and runs for about 30 minutes. Please bring a blanket &/or chairs, along with anything else you may need to keep you and your little one comfortable (water, sunblock, sunhats). No registration is required and all families are welcome!

In the event of rain or excessively hot temps, we'll be meeting in the Children's Room. Keep your eye on the signboard by the road and follow us on Facebook for any weather-related changes.
