ToddlerTime
Jun 25 @ 10:30 – 11:00

ToddlerTime is a well-established tradition at the Library, ever since the Library’s move into the new building at the end of 2012. Once a week, parents and tots are invited to join an enthusiastic Library volunteer for 30 minutes of stories, rhymes, and simple activities best suited for children 3 and under.

ToddlerTime, like its companion program, StoryTime, is a great way to nurture literacy in young children. Even before children learn to speak, exposure to narrative patterns like rhyme, rhythm and repetition help them form the cognitive pathways that lead to literacy.

ToddlerTime provides a free, welcoming environment, open to drop-ins and without registration. Salt Spring residents and visitors alike are welcome on the rainbow carpet in the children’s area of the Library.

For more information on the Salt Spring Library and its programs, visit us online at http://saltspring.bc.libraries.coop/, or find us on Facebook or Twitter. You can also contact the Library directly at info@saltspringlibrary.com, or by phone at 250-537-4666.
