Do you have a 0-5 year old? Join us for Babytime (0-2 years), Toddlertime (18mths - 3 years) and Storytime (3-5 years) as we build the foundations of literacy through singing and reading.

Babytime: A 30 minute program of rhyming, singing and reading. Suitable for 0-2 year olds.

Toddlertime: A 30 minute program of songs, stories and movement activities, held on Fridays at Springwood. Suitable for 18 months to 3 year olds.

Storytime: A 45 minute program of stories, singing and craft. Suitable for 3-5 year olds.

All the Library’s pre-school programs are designed to be flexible in their age ranges as children learn and interact differently and grapple with the challenges of concentration and sitting still! They are delivered by friendly, professional staff who aim to help your child learn to love books and literature, interact with other children and explore creativity.
