Did you know that children are learning how to read and write in infancy? The organization Zero to Three defines literacy as "what children know about communication, verbal and nonverbal language, reading, and writing before they can actually read and write": Early experiences with stories, rhymes, songs, play, and scribbling help your child be more successful when he or she enters school and encourage a lifelong love of reading.

The following links provide activities, health information and resources to help pave the way for reading fluency and school readiness in young children.

Come visit us in storytime! Every session we engage in Every Child Ready to Read's five main early literacy practices to help your child grow: talking, writing, reading, playing, and singing. 

View our Ready to Read brochure to discover simple activities you can do at home to promote early literacy.

We have storytimes for children of all ages. View our schedule to find the session that best for your family.
