Storytime has been running at Livvi’s Cafe Five Dock, Ryde and Willowdale.

Over the past year there have been: 1200 children bring their listening ears and craft-making hands to Storytime; 70 different crafts made into masterpieces; 240 books narrated and imaginations sparked; 120 nursery rhymes sung with happiness

Not only has Storytime given opportunities for children to learn social skills, fine motor skills and have a whole lot of fun, it’s provided parents, Grandparents and Carers a way to connect with others in a welcoming and inclusive environment.

“My daughter Sophia and I love coming to Storytime. We look forward to it each week. It’s great  being exposed to fun new books, and craft time activities are talked about for days. I enjoy  watching the children singing and laughing with all the other parents and grandparents.”

“My daughter Dylan looks forward to Livvi’s Place and Storytime every week. It’s a wonderful way for kids to interact and socialise (and for parents) and it really is the highlight of our week! Thank you to all those who help run it.”
