Join us for this new, ongoing program! Geared toward ages 2-5, all are welcome. These programs will include elements of music, movement and story. On a given day, we may play some parachute games, use stretchy bands, explore noise & music props or take a look at some flannel board stories.  Accomodations made for those with sensory issues: we'll have noise-canceling headphones, picture schedules and fidgets available.
