Time for Tots
February 16 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
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)
Children 0 years-5 years old are invited to come with an adult to play, hear a bible lesson, have a snack, make an art project and play in the gym or outside. You can come either on Tuesdays or Thursdays.
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!
|All children from birth to kindergarten are welcome. You can pick either Tuesdays or Thursdays.
They offer play time, Bible story, Snack, art and gym or outside time. (9:00-10:30) $30 donation
When is Time for Tots?
9:00 – 9:30 a.m. is spent as free play in our preschool classroom. Adults enjoy coffee and conversation as we watch our 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 our structured time of the morning. The adults and children snuggle up together for our Circle Time which includes songs and stories centered around the Bible. We love kids! We know that sitting still is not often on their agenda. We plan for that.
We then share a snack that we often try to match the theme of the lesson. Think adorable food. Finally we create 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. we get to RUN! Zion is blessed with a playground specifically designed for early childhood. We also have a gleaming gym filled with a variety of age appropriate toys. We’d love nothing more than to send you home with a child who cannot wait for their nap.
Please register for EITHER Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday mornings, 9:00-10:30 a.m.
- The semesters run from October 11 thru April 27, 2022.
They ask for $30 per family for each semester to help cover materials of the fun.
