Storytime Guidelines

  • Parent/caregiver participation is the key to success of this program. Please join in the activities and show your child it's fun!
  • Your child does take cues from you, the adult. During storytime, the storyteller is the main voice. When the storyteller is talking or reading, all other adult voices should be off so the child knows where to focus and what to follow.
  • Please leave toys and food behind.
  • Making an effort to be on time for storytime will help your child transition into attentive listening and reduce distractions for the larger group.
  • If your child is crying or otherwise distracting others, please step out and 'regroup.'
  • Perfection is not expected! Children may take a while before being ready to sit attentively in a group. With practice, and adults modeling attentive behavior, they will learn over time. Out goal is to have fun with rhymes, songs, books, and other language-building play.
