Who is Mornings with Mommy for?
Mornings with Mommy is for children ages birth through preschool accompanied by an adult (Dads, Grandmas, Grandpas and nannies are welcome, too!  It's not just for Moms).

What will we be doing at Mornings with Mommy?
Each session is a little different because each one has its own theme, but the basic structure will be consistent. We will begin with language and literacy activities on the big rug (stories, flannel board and songs). After that the director will explain the different stations set up in the room. These stations will include arts, crafts, sensory activities, gross motor skills and fine motor skills and an infant area. Then you will explore these activities at your own pace, while enjoying the company of the other adults. At 10:30 snack will be served. You may enjoy the snack at Mornings with Mommy or take it "to-go" for the ride home.
