Time for Tots
April 14 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, repeating until April 22, 2021
Time for Tots was developed by Mrs. Kari Hahm, the music teacher, and Mrs. Beth Gross, the preschool teacher, at Zion Lutheran in Hartland, to facilitate families as they raise their children to be ready for their walk of life with Jesus. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)
The staff at Zion love programs that involve BOTH the grown-ups and the child. They want to strengthen your relationship with Jesus AND your child. They want to give you experiences you can share together whether you are mom, dad, grandparent, nanny – all caregivers!
When is Time for Tots?
9:00 – 9:30 a.m. is spent as free play in the preschool classroom. Adults enjoy coffee and conversation as all watch the kiddos play. The intent is to give you support with other adults who are going through the same situations you are. The children then have opportunities to socialize with kids their own age. Babies and Toddlers have not reached the developmental stage of cooperative play. They still play alongside (parallel play) other children. But they are fascinated to watch any child around them. Children aged 2 ½ – 5 are eager for friends to interact with.
9:30 – 10:00 a.m. is the structured time of the morning. The adults and children snuggle up together for Circle Time which includes songs and stories centered around the Bible. They love kids! They know that sitting still is not often on their agenda. They plan for that.
Then they share a snack that they often try to match the theme of the lesson. Think adorable food. Finally, the staff creates art that the kids can bring home to reflect on what they learned as well as share with every single person they know.
10:00 – 10:30 a.m. time to RUN! Zion is blessed with a playground specifically designed for early childhood. They also have a gleaming gym filled with a variety of age appropriate toys. They would love nothing more than to send you home with a child who cannot wait for their nap.
Please register for EITHER Tuesday or Thursday mornings, 9:00-10:30 a.m.
