LENA Start is a FREE 10-week class for families with children ages birth to 36 months that will be offered at Butman-Fish for the first time in Fall 2022. The goal of the program is to help parents increase talk, which encourages their babies' literacy and brain growth.
Read-aloud stories, finger plays, music, and other fun activities help young children gain self-confidence, develop language skills, and appreciate the love of books and reading.
This free program is currently offered on Fridays at Butman-Fish at 10:30 a.m. and Saturdays at Zauel at 10:30 a.m. Zauel also offers a Tales for Twos storytime especially for toddlers on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m.
