Preschool storytime at Bradford Public Library


Staff report



BRADFORD – Bradford Public Library will be holding sign-ups for the next six-week Preschool StoryTime, which will begin on Tuesday, August 4 from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m..

The Theme is Fun in the Summer! The class is taught by Mrs. Becky Combs, who holds a degree in Elementary Education from Bowling Green State University. She utilizes her knowledge of Preschool and Early Childhood Development when planning and implementing activities that engage and benefit children in order to promote early academic success.

Bradford Public Library has identified that a need exists to assist area families and schools by providing an environment and developmental experiences which promote growth and learning. This approach will help ensure that children entering school are eager and excited to learn. The areas that children will be exposed to during Preschool StoryTime are:

* Different approaches to learning

* Health and physical well-being

* Language and communication development

* Social and emotional development

* Cognitive and general knowledge

The criteria for each six-week Preschool StoryTime is that every child must be three years of age through children who have not yet attended Kindergarten. Parents are encouraged to be an active participant, if possible. There will be a separate location for younger children and mothers with babies. Sign-ups are necessary for this type of developmental program in order to purchase and prepare an appropriate number supplies. Contact Bradford Public Library at 937-448-2612 for further information or stop in and sign-up your preschooler!
