Storyplay

We never read a book from cover to cover—we play within the pages!

StoryPlay is a one-of-a-kind, action-packed 50-minute class which is filled with hands-on activities geared for toddlers and preschoolers along with an accompanying adult.

StoryPlay Toddlers

1 & 2 years with an accompanying adult
The Toddler class focuses on turn-taking, sharing, group instruction, and basic direction following. These goals are accomplished through music, movement, parachute activities, puppets, bubbles, and so much more! A thematic picture schedule is used to guide the children through this highly structured class. Children of any ability can be successful in StoryPlay!

StoryPlay Preschoolers

3 & 4 years with an accompanying adult
Preschoolers follow a weekly theme where storybooks come to life as we act them out. The focus is on comprehension and school readiness skills. Basic academics are introduced. Through music, puppets, creative movement, props, balls, books, parachute play, and more the children combine fine and gross motor skills in this one-of-a-kind class!

The oldest StoryPlay class includes everything in the StoryPlay Preschoolers class but takes it a step further. Academic skills are a focus in preparation for kindergarten. Parts of a book, letters, numbers, and spatial concepts are featured.

Meet Your Instructor

Keri Demos

Keri Demos, or Ms. Keri as the kids call her, is the creator and instructor of StoryPlay. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Adaptive Physical Education and her master’s degree in Early Childhood Special Education with a specialty in autism.

The concept of StoryPlay and its current home, The Playroom, were both created by Keri. The ideas stemmed from activities she had sought for her own children but was unable to find in her community.

Testimonials

As a grandmother of two, I discovered the wonderful experience of The Playroom six years ago.

Keri gave my grandson the best educational start in Story Play at the age of 9 months. He was shy and was afraid to participate. With continued support at Story Play, he has soared.

At the age of 2 now, he sings, claps and fully participates joyfully. His speech and sign language skills have been accentuated by the participation at Story Play with Keri.
