What is Toddler Time?
Toddler Time aims to introduce toddlers ages 18 to 36 months to literacy and encourage positive brain and motor development. Each gathering consists of books, music or movement activities, and a craft. Toddler Time can expand toddlers' vocabulary, help them play with letters and sounds, improve their ability to describe things or tell stories, and encourage an understanding and enjoyment of books and reading.
Toddler Time occurs Thursday evenings from 6-6:30 p.m. in the storytime room.
Families can register for Toddler Time at the library's front desk and begin attending Toddler Time right away. When your toddler outgrows Toddler Time, consider enrolling your child in preschool storytime.
Toddler Time occurs year-round except when the library building is closed. Any other cancellations or schedule changes will be posted in the library and on the library's website.
Toddler Time Guidelines
- Toddlers do not sit perfectly still. Children this age often like to move around and make noise, and that is just fine.
- If your toddler starts to cry, feel free to take your child out of the room until he or she is ready to return.
- Please make arrangements for any other siblings. Children younger than eight must be attended and supervised in the library at all times. (Refer to the Dwight Foster Public Library's Unattended Children Policy.)
