Preschool Storytime is heading outdoors every Wednesday at the Willingdon Beach Pavilion. Families with preschoolers can reserve a “bubble” and come out to enjoy puppetry, rhymes, singalong songs and of course stories at a safe physical distance.

How it works: circular mats will be used to create “bubbles” placed with three metres between each bubble to support a safe environment that respects physical distancing. Kids from the same household/bubble can share bubbles. Caregivers can sit in or beside bubbles but must remain with children throughout storytime and help maintain physical distance during the program. Hand sanitizing will be required as part of attendance. Mask-wearing is encouraged, especially for attending adults. No person may be present as a spectator at the program, unless their presence is necessary in order to provide care to a participating child. We ask that all participants disperse immediately after the event and avoid congregating. If you or your child are feeling unwell, please stay home.

Space is limited and advance registration is required. Storytime runs from 10:30-11 am.

Bubble Storytime is (somewhat) weather dependent and may be cancelled at the discretion of the Children’s Services Coordinator.  Be sure to check your email before you go!  If the weather is too stormy or yucky, you will receive a cancellation email.  The location offers shade but we recommend you bring your own sun hat or umbrella if you have sun concerns. Bring a blanket or towel in case of cold concrete or damp ground conditions.
