Toddler Time

Toddler Time is our specially designed program for children ages 2 to 5 years old, where each session helps young minds grow through interactive stories, engaging hands-on activities and social interaction.

Toddler Time is a monthly program, every third Tuesday of the Month. Listed below is a schedule of upcoming programs with descriptions. Currently our Toddler Time is a live virtual program on Zoom that includes a story, songs, gallery or object tour and the printable activities below.
