Itty Bitty Book Club Drop-off (2.5-4 years)

Fee: child only, without caregiver $250 / 8 weeks

Open
  • Calling all little book worms! Did you know that children who learn to read early tend to be those who have a variety of books and have been taught to value them? Did you also know that shared reading and positive attitudes toward literacy promote early literacy skills?

This brand new class, taught by a certified early childhood education teacher (Melissa B.) as well as our music & movement and art instructor (Melissa K.), will help foster a love of books by bringing together a little music, a little art, a little reading and a lot of FUN!   Each session focuses on two children’s storybooks, which each child will be gifted to take home and enjoy!  Children will have fun with peers while they actively listen to a story and engage in developmental play activities that relate to the book’s theme.  Thoughtfully planned sensory art projects, group games, and movement & music time will strengthen early literacy, language, motor, and social skills.
