Activities for little ones
There are lots of activities and events going on around Kent to keep your little ones entertained.
Get creative in Kent Libraries
Baby rhyme time
Baby rhyme time is a free, fun and noisy way for under 3s to develop a love of language and a foundation for learning. Each session lasts about 20 minutes and includes the opportunity to join in with nursery rhymes and action songs. Find out if your local library is running a baby rhyme time session.
Listening to stories is a great way to develop and encourage young children to read books. Come and join one of our storytime sessions for 3 to 4 year olds - it's great fun! Find out if your local library is running a storytime session.
