Tips, Guidelines (rules) for a Successful Story Time
Please help me make story time a good experience for all by remaining close to your children and participating and interacting along with them.
If you find your child wandering too far away, please gently lead them back to the group.
If your child is crying or having a hard time, or not being gentle with another child, please feel free to step outside for a bit and come back when they are ready, or try to come back another time.
Cell phones and other electronic equipment should be silent while in story time.
Please no Eating in Class -If little tummies cannot wait, please feel free to step out of the room.
To avoid unnecessary distractions, please leave toys at home.
