At the Strauss ECE and Kindergarten, we love books!
Reading aloud is recognized as an important activity leading to language development. As such, we have started our new enrichment program called the Strauss Storytellers. Every Friday, the children in our 2, 3, and Pre-K classrooms will join together in the Katz Family Library and Youth Center to hear two or three books read aloud.
