The Pandemic changed lives, especially the lives of children. This past year we worked with children on Zoom and recognize their social, emotional and academic needs are different now. Trusted for over 25 years, Storybook Workshop is ready to booster skills and to provide a warm and inviting in-person environment for children to play and learn. Our experienced, caring instructors are ready to create magical literacy learning experiences once again. We hope you'll fly back to our cozy nest this fall. We can't wait to see you!

By combining music, movement, drama and art with a classic piece of literature, we engage children actively with substantial developmental benefits. Our activities encourage cooperation, confidence, language proficiency and vocabulary building. This age-appropriate class provides an excellent foundation for your soon-to-be reader.

Children love dramatic play!
What's more fun after a day in school than a very active class? Using the very best in children's classic and contemporary literature, we'll explore drama, and create simple scenery and use props to bring a story to life. Our dramatic activities and games help develop literacy skills, while also extending vocabulary, concentration and self-expression. Our stories and guided drama, along with literacy and cooperation games create a rich multi-sensory experience just perfect for emerging readers.

A first for us... a true collaborative
Come right after school! We're bringing our team together. Tina, Steph and Kerry are teaching TOGETHER for the first time. The pandemic had us happily planning a new ENRICHMENT class for children. An orchestrated music, movement, art and drama class, Literacy Workshop provides an exciting hands-on multi disciplinary experience. Using a balanced literacy approach, we explore books and their authors, poems, songs and tongue twisters incorporating vocabulary, phonics, and rhyme activities. Integrating art, drama and music, this class will focus on the fundamentals of literacy development.
We provide a valet-type drop-off and pick-up for this class
