Limit 30 children each class!

 

Younger siblings (accompanied by an adult) and older children are welcome.  All children must be able to sit quietly; if your child isn’t ready for quiet sitting, please come to the 0-2 class.  It has a lot more movement!  You may stay with or drop off your age three or older child (depending on your child’s comfort and behavior).  If you stay, please model listening and participation.  If you drop off, please return by 10:30 a.m. because your child might need your help with the craft.  Crafts will be available to the first 20 (ages 3 and up) to sign in each day.

Cuddlers & Toddlers Storytime @ Destin Library Tickets
Apr 23 @ 9:30 am – 10:00 am

This toddler time experience is an early exposure to storytime. Children will learn the beginnings of sitting and listening to stories and songs. Music and movement are included in this 30-minute class. Language interaction is emphasized through short read-aloud picture books, talking, listening, fingerplays, and singing. Parents are encouraged to sit next to the child and participate. Be encouraged when you see your child interacting with the songs, getting closer to the story, and practicing their sitting skills as they continue to attend. We love to hear reports of pretend play at home, children repeating the songs or rhymes, and we will celebrate with you when you share your story. Join us every Thursday morning at 9:30 am.
