Connect Kidz

Welcome to the Connect City Church Connect Kidz!!

The CCC Connect Kidz runs Sunday from 11:00am -12:00pm and is for parents/carers of babies, toddlers and preschool aged children (0-5). You're welcome to come to every session or just when it suits We meet in the Parent's Room at Connect City Church - 3/60-70 Mahoneys Rd, Thomastown.

There is no cost associated with being part of this group and we have no committee meetings, working bees or fundraisers!! Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided each session Although the playgroup has a very relaxed and casual feel to it each session is structured and facilitated around a different theme (such as Old MacDonald's Farm or Teddy Bear's Picnic, etc).

The sessions begin with FREE PLAY (play doh, blocks, dolls, cubby house, puppets, dress ups, 'home corner', colouring, cars/trains, etc) giving the children an opportunity to settle in and interact with each other and parents the chance to catch up as everyone makes their way in!

We then come together to SING AND MOVE to some much loved nursery rhymes - sometimes with the help of our puppets, percussion instruments, etc... and listen to a couple of interactive STORIES relating to the session's theme (pop up books, 'touchy feely' books, lift the flap, etc). Parents and children then have the option of working together on a simple craft activity or returning to play!

This is a great time of really connecting with your little person, no matter how young, as they get the opportunity to experience different textures, colours, shapes, etc. Towards the end of the session we work together to tidy up the room before heading home! There is no need to bring toys as we have a variety of toys appropriate for all ages (including play mats, bouncers and activity centres for babies). We also have a change table and two high chairs.

Please feel free to bring along anyone that you think would like to join us and call Laura on 0413 400 341 or email laura.mangubat@hotmail.com if you would like more information, pamphlets, the 2014 program or enrolment forms! We look forward to meeting you and your little person!
