Tinker Time for Tots

Updated: Feb 6

The Literacy & Learning Center is excited to provide engaging workshops tailored for preschoolers and their parents in the upcoming year. Organized and led by Carolyn Middlebrooks, Pre-K Director, the aim is to empower parents by demonstrating inventive ways to utilize everyday household items for their children's educational benefit. These sessions will showcase practical activities that parents can seamlessly incorporate into their daily routines, fostering a rich learning environment at home.

Moreover, a vital component of these workshops involves hands-on, make-and-take activities. During these interactive sessions, children can create something meaningful, which they can then take home and use as a tool for ongoing learning. These creative endeavors are designed to be enjoyable and reinforce essential skills crucial for early development.

The workshop curriculum is diverse, encompassing activities designed to enhance motor skills, instill fundamental concepts, and prepare young learners for the academic challenges they will encounter as they transition into school. The series began with workshops on fine motor skills in January. Join us for the next session!
