“At Kiddie Academy, reading together is an essential part of preparing children for school and life, as it introduces children to new ideas, experiences and concepts that allow their imaginations to flourish,” states Kiddie Academy of Harrisburg owner, Krushani Patel. “Storytime LIVE! gives families the opportunity to spend quality time together through a fun community event, all while laying the groundwork for children’s lifelong passion for books.”  


Research shows that reading aloud to young children posits a multitude of benefits, from boosting vocabulary and stimulating speech, to lessening behavioral issues. Plus, students who are exposed to reading before preschool are more likely to do well in all facets of formal education; it also builds motivation, curiosity and memory, and helps children cope with stress. Storytime LIVE! combines learning and fun—both key ingredients to Kiddie Academy’s Life Essentials® curriculum—for an engaging experience for adults and children alike.
