Story Time With Celia

Join us for story time EVERY SUNDAY with Celia.

Story time features a story (of course), an activity and a snack. We try to have a healthy snack but somehow those cookies keep sneaking into the menu.

Anyway, story time last about 45 minutes, is geared for ages 4-7 (although all ages are welcome)  and is a great way to meet other parents and for your children to get out of the house and enjoy some creative time with the arts, literature and each other.

See you there.
