LIGHTHOUSE CARER & TODDLER GROUP
Meets Weekly on Thursday Mornings (term time only)
10:30am – 11:45am
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 (ie 0-5 years old). That includes mums, dads, grandparents, child-minders, nannies……all are welcome.
We aim to have fun together whilst learning about Jesus.
We start off the morning with a structured session of singing, storytime and craft. The children have fun dancing, joining in with the actions and playing musical instruments to a series of simple songs. We all sit together to enjoy a story that might consist of puppets, props, pictures, or sound and animation.
We then move on to our craft time where the children have the opportunity to make a simple craft with the help of their grown-up. The craft follows on, and reinforces, the theme from story time.
Now it’s 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 a fruit snack. Meanwhile the adults take the opportunity to have a chat and a cup of tea or coffee. On the first Thursday of every month we treat ourselves to a slice of cake as well!
