Footloose Friday - And So it Begins

We debuted a new program this week: Footloose Fridays! Fridays starting at 10:15 a.m., this groovy group sings and dances and dresses up for 45 minutes of fun! We read stories that incorporate music and movement, engage in creative play with our dress up chests, and then wrap up the program with some free dance!

The Ants Go Marching One By One, illustrated by Nicole Groot


Is Everyone Ready for Fun? by Jan Thomas


The Croaky Pokey! by Ethan Long


If You're a Monster and You Know It, by Rebecca & Ed Emberley
