Wā Kōrero: Storytimes

Wā Kōrero programmes include stories, music, movement and rhymes for children aged 2 and over. Meet others in our community when you and your pre-schooler join us for a fun variety of stories, songs and rhymes which foster children’s literacy. All whānau and caregivers welcome. Free, no bookings required.

Kōrero pukapuka, pūoru, korikori.
If you want to do Wā Kōrero at home, watch our online storytimes.

Wā Pēpi: Babytimes is for babies and under-2s.
