Preschool Age Programs

Kuna Library Programs for Preschool Age Children

Art, crafts, dancing, singing, playing musical instruments, kindergarten readiness, and reading are all part of the activities we offer during our programs for busy preschool age kids. Most programs do not require advance sign-up. However, our Kinder-Set Go!, Music and Movement, Mini Monets are the exception. Kinder-Set Go! registration opens before the session begins, Music and Movement registration opens approximately a week before the session begins. Mini Monet sign-ups are done at the door before each session.
