Children six and under are invited to participate with caregivers in free enrichment activities designed to help toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergarten students get ready for school. Each child attending will receive a free book each visit!
The events take place from 4:15 to 5 p.m. each Thursday at the Gladstone Center for Children & Families, 18905 Portland Avenue in Gladstone. Here’s the schedule:
• 1st Thursdays: Story Hour is a chance to share books and learning activities with a different theme each month.
• 2nd Thursdays: Activity Hour offers games, movement and fun with peers and caregivers. Children can build social skills, language skills, and coordination while making new friends.
• 3rd Thursdays: STEAM Hour gives kids a chance to explore Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math, working on hands-on, age-appropriate projects with a parent or caregiver.
• 4th Thursdays: Science Hour allows children to explore science through fun, hands-on activities such as building structures, studying motion, and making hypotheses.
