Kiddie Academy of Kirkland to host ‘Storytime LIVE!’
July 30, 2012 · 9:14 AM
Educationally focused child care provider Kiddie Academy of Kirkland will host Storytime LIVE! on Aug. 4, inviting Kirkland area children and their parents to come and enjoy a story highlighted by a visit from the story’s lead character Curious George.
“Our Storytime LIVE! event is open to everyone - our current students, new friends who would like to learn more about us, or anyone who would simply
like to share a special experience with their child,” said Ramandeep Thind of Kiddie Academy of Kirkland. “Reading together helps prepare children for school and for life by exposing them to new ideas, new situations and new emotions in a nurturing classroom setting.”
The event is free and begins at 11 a.m. The lead character from the story, Curious George, will make an appearance at the event, so Thind reminds parents to bring their cameras to capture their child’s smiles.
Parents are encouraged to register at www.kastorytime.com.
“Adding a live visit from a character in the story really helps to make Storytime LIVE! a memorable experience for the children,” said Thind. “Engaging children in a group in an exciting and enjoyable educational experience lays the groundwork for a successful transition into a school setting and a lifetime love of reading and learning.”
