REGULAR PROGRAMMING

Regular Programming is returning! 

We are proud to announce the return of story time. Recommended ages are 4-6 years. Story time will be held on the second Saturday of the month starting at 10:30 A.M. Each month we will read a different themed book followed by an activity for the little ones to continue the story or make a fun memory to take home.

We are happy to introduce STEM adventures for the first time! recommended ages will vary and be announced each month. Every month will have a different STEM activity using various STEM techniques and concepts such as electricity, circuits, and optics (light). There will be take home prizes or the experiments themselves.
