LIGHTHOUSE CARER & TODDLER GROUP
Meets Weekly on Thursday Mornings (term time only)
Lighthouse is for children under 5 years with their parents or carers.
It’s a mix of singing, making, playing and chatting, based around a Bible theme.
At Lighthouse we aim to provide a place of welcome, friendship and care to all carers with pre-school children (0-5 years old). That’s includes mums, dads, grandparents, childminders and nannies…all are welcome. We aim to have fun together while learning about Jesus.
We start off the morning with a structured session of singing, story time and craft. The children have fun dancing and joining in with actions to the songs. We all sit together to enjoy a story, that might consist of actions, puppets or animation and then move onto craft time where the children can make a simple craft with the help of their grown up.
Then its playtime! The children can play with the toys, use up some energy by running around or have fun on the slide. They can help themselves to a drink and fruit snack. Meanwhile, the adults can have a chat and a cup of tea or coffee. On the first Thursday of every month its cake week too!
We ran a shorter online Lighthouse session, when we couldn’t meet in person because of Covid-19. You can have fun while singing action songs, listening to stories, meeting puppets and seeing some fantastic craft ideas to do with your children at home.
