Ring in the New Year with our Fantastic Storytimes! Programs begin January 16th!

Ring in the new year with one of our fabulous storytimes which begin next week (1/16/12)!  

Storytimes engage children through the use of picture books, songs, dances, fingerplays, and flannel boards to help build early literacy skills such as print and phonological awareness, create social interaction in a playgroup setting, and develop creativity and self-suffiencency through easy-to-make crafts.

We have many age-appropriate storytimes which your child can join! Each storytime is designed for the particular age group it is geared towards. All children are welcome! You do not need to be a resident of Oak Brook to join our storytimes.
