Winter Session: Jan 07 - Feb 28*

Listening to stories and participating in fingerplays, songs, crafts, and dramatic responses can broaden a child's experience and stimulate creative thought. It offers an opportunity to develop socialization, language, and listening skills, and builds the foundations for reading.
