Preschool Playgroup

We are going to be having weekly Preschool Playgroup but in a different way through the end of December. Every week I’ll send a link for a book reading. Each week we will have games, crafts, STEM activities and fun. At the beginning of the month you can pick up bags with all the supplies for these activities. All of this can be done at your convenience. If you decide that early mornings, afternoons or evenings work better for you that is when you can join in, Call or email Miss Beth at 815-496-2031 or bwood@rwrlibrary.org for questions or concerns.

Stop by and pick up your Preschool Playgroup bags December 3. 

Join us every Thursday morning starting in Jan. 2021 at 11:00 am. Why does a groundhog want to see his shadow? Will Sleeping Beauty ever wake up? Are giraffes often mistaken as chairs? Join us for a fun story time that answers these questions, plays games, creates crafts and more. 

This program is geared toward ages 3 – 5 years and lasts approximately thirty minutes.

Follows the Community Unit #2 School Calendar.
