A group of preschool students made their way to Rocky Mountain Village Wednesday, Jan. 14 for a monthly story time visit.

The four-year-olds enjoyed listening to stories and live music by Anie Hepher while becoming acquainted with some of Fernie’s senior residents.

“We want to introduce the children to as many new things as possible,” said Heather Skaien, owner of the preschool Creative Minds. “We do these visits on a monthly basis and it really helps the children establish a knowledge and respect for the elderly,” she said.

The visits are part of the library’s Seniors and Kids Intergenerational Program (SKIP). In addition to Rocky Mountain Village’s story time, Tom Uphill Manor also hosts story time events.
