As parents look at our storytime schedule, they may wonder, “Should my child attend Baby Lapsit or Toddler Time?”
Here’s a quick explanation of how these programs differ.
Baby Lapsit is primarily for non-walking babies ages 0 and 1. The general guideline is that if the child will still sit on their caregiver’s lap, they are welcome at Baby Lapsit. So, for some children, they may enjoy this program at 1 or even 2 years old. Many parents enjoy this small, intimate group setting and the one-on-one time with their child. But, once the child is active and wants to explore, the child belongs at …
Toddler Time! This program is primarily for children ages 1 and 2 (up to 35 months). However, some active and engaged children do stay through age 3. In this group, we expect the children to roam, explore, and display a variety of active behaviors. Because of the active nature of this program, babies and older siblings are always welcome. Parents should be aware this program can be hectic and large in size. Give children a few weeks to get acclimatized.
Storytime is for ages 3 to 5 only. Children should be comfortable sitting for stories and participating in group songs and activities as well as a craft. Younger children may attend Toddler Time or Friday Fun until they reach the point in their development when storytime is right for them.
