Young children learn about the world through exploration, and it’s never too early to start! Each week preschoolers will spark their curiosity and literacy with hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) activities combined with their favourite stories and songs.

Talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing are the key skills and fun ways to help your child get ready to read! Developing early literacy skills makes it easier for children to read once they begin school, and helps foster a lifelong love of reading and learning!
