Stories for Shorties

McAllister has a new program starting this FALL for kids ages 3-5 called Stories for Shorties! This program is geared toward helping pre-school age children learn through short stories. They’ll discover counting, animals, the alphabet, seasons and much more! The class will be held every Friday from September 8-December 15 from 10:00-11:00 a.m.
