Storytime at Black Kite Coffee and Pies

. May 1, 2016.

When I was younger, my mom always told me there were two things that bolstered a parent’s stamina — caffeine and quality childcare. The older I get, the more I realize this advice was less a joke than the truth. To get your fix of both, Storytime with Teacher Denise at Black Kite Coffee might be the answer to your quest to recharge your parental batteries. 

Career early childhood educator Denise Rokicki brings you the best of both worlds—a coffee shop atmosphere and story time with play designed for infants to five-year-old children. A Toledo-native, Rokicki has spent more than 30 years in education, creating music and movement programs for children emphasizing storytime. The all-inclusive play welcomes special-needs children as Rokicki relates stories while sharing terrific tales. 

While Storytime is free, space is limited, and is first come, first served. Adults must remain in the shop throughout the hour.
