  • If your child is restless or crying, please leave the Storytime area until your child is composed
  • Please join in with the stories, songs and craft
  • Please do not distract the children by talking to other parents/carers during Storytime.  However, please feel free to stay and chat with other parents after Storytime is finished! Thank you for helping to make Storytime such a success.  We can't do it without you!
