Child development students in Mrs. Orange’s class have been participating weekly in Tiny Tots Story Time every Thursday at 10:30 at the Redbank Valley Public Library, working hand in hand with library director, Janine Strohm. Students work with children from newborn to 5 years old. Each week students read stories, help with crafts, sing, and help with snacks in an effort to gain hands-on experience working with children and providing literacy enrichment.

The child development students began the year in class learning about early language development. They have come to learn that a literacy-rich experience for a child entails a natural unfolding of skills. Through positive interactions and working one on one with Tiny Tots, students are learning the importance of exposure to literature. Working with Tiny Tots is allowing students to make a positive influence in the life of a child right here in the Valley.

    Kiley,

    Thanks so much for shedding light on child development classes. I’m so proud of the work my students do to promote literacy. They really enjoy working with the children and get so excited to spend time with them.
