Welcome to Youth Services
THE 2016-2017 STORY TIME SCHEDULE STARTS SEPTEMBER 6TH AND CONCLUDES ON MAY 25TH.
Our story times develop early literacy skills and promote a love of reading in a warm, welcoming environment. No registration required. *Story Times are not held during regular Gorham school vacations and holidays or when they are closed due to inclement weather.
Pre-School Story Time - Tuesdays at 9:30 am
(Ages 3 to 5). Early literacy skills, school readiness skills, listening, and following directions are developed during this time. Our story time is designed to introduce children to books and libraries in a positive and enjoyable way. The program includes a variety of stories, songs, action rhymes, and crafts. Pre-School Story Time is also a time when children can learn socialization skills by interacting with children their own age.
Baby and Me - Thursdays at 9:30 am
(Birth to 18 months). Delight and stimulate your baby’s senses with books and music. Exposure to words, rhymes, music, and movement during the first 18 months of life assists in developing language and motor skills. Baby and Me is also a time when children can learn socialization skills by interacting with children their own age.
Toddler Time - Wednesday and Thursdays at 10 am (we offer the same program twice a week to accommodate our large toddler population)
(18-36 months). Our staff presents stories, songs, rhymes, and movement activities to match the age and attention span of participants. Children in this age range react differently; they will be at all levels of development. The goal of our program is to set the stage for a love of reading and lifelong learning. Toddler Time is also an opportunity for children to learn socialization skills by interacting with others their own age.
