Story Time Room Renovation

We have a story to tell! Our story time room has been renovated from top to bottom thanks to a generous donation by the Flynn Family Foundation. Every part of the story time room is now refreshed from the bright blue hues of the new carpet to the crisp nautical theme on the walls. Stories, songs, rhymes and more will abound in our beautiful new story time room! Check out this slideshow of before and after photos.
