Storytime Puaawai

Storytime is a fun-filled preschool programme tailored specifically for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. The programmes feature stories, songs, movement and interactive fun which foster children's literacy. Caregivers can bond with their children while enhancing their social, cognitive, motor and musical skills. Storytime is held weekly during school terms at all libraries.

There is no need to book; sessions run for up to 45 minutes and are free. Come along - read, dance, and have fun at your local library.
