Preschool Story Time


10:00AM & 3:00PM

Ideal for children between the ages of 2 and 4, these simple stories and songs are chosen with younger children in mind. Not only does being read to spark imagination and expand a child’s understanding of the world but it also helps develop language and listening skills to prepare to them for reading themselves.

 S.T.E.A.M Exploration
10:00AM & 3:30PM

Learning about science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) is a great way to teach children about the scientific process and help develop their critical thinking skills. This program gives fun, hands-on activities to help children learn how exciting STEAM can be. This is a program for children 3 years old and older.


This cooking club is designed for preschoolers and includes two of our favorite things: stories and eating. Every week we will read a new book and then prepare food that the book has inspired. Children will learn reasoning and comprehension skills through the act of preparing their own dish. They might even be eager to help with dinner next time.

Toddler Time

Sing, dance, and play during this program designed especially for toddlers. This is a great time to inspire young children to have fun while learning.

Kids Cooking Club



Flavors change from season to season. This program, sponsored by Harris Teeter, helps children to explore different foods and combine them into recipes. They will talk about different ingredients before making their signature dish. Cooking is not just a great way to fill tummies. Having to take steps one by one helps children’s reasoning and comprehension skills.



Grow Together.

Kids 'n' Cultures



This program educates children about a variety of countries and cultural practices. Each week we will participate in an art-based activity inspired by that week’s country of choice. Learning about different cultures is a great way to help children develop stronger social skills, be more open-minded, and heighten their willingness to learn!

Adventures in Art

At Adventures in Art children paint, sculpt, perform, dance and print. Art helps children express themselves while developing visual-spatial skills. They will learn about famous artists and different ways to be creative. This is a fun program that will expose children to different forms of art and encourage them to create their own. Please pre-register.
