Mornings with Mommy

  Mornings with Mommy  
Mornings with Mommy isn't preschool, and it isn't childcare, it's something different.  Mornings with Mommy is a fun and easy way for you to enjoy activities with your children and meet other adults. There will be age appropriate activities for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergarteners.  And the best part is, we do all the planning, you just sign up!  Adults can mingle with each other and enjoy activities with their children including: arts and crafts, sensory table, flannel stories and story time, devotion, music, educational toys, and a snack.  The program costs only five dollars per family per session and includes all snacks and activities.  Register online today or call 262-391-7994. Don't delay!  Space is limited!  Find us on Facebook at

Who is Mornings with Mommy for?

Mornings with Mommy is for children ages 0-6 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 children and caregivers can explore the different stations set up in the room. These stations will include arts, crafts, sensory bins, educational activities, pretend play, gross motor skills and fine motor skills. You can do these activities at your own pace, while enjoying the company of the other adults. At 10:30 a snack will be served. You may enjoy it at Mornings with Mommy or take it to go for the ride home.

Mornings with Mommy COVID-19 Plans

Yes, Mornings with Mommy will look different this school year; however, we are very excited to be starting another year of the program.  Here is what you can expect:  

~Closing: We will continue with Mornings with Mommy as scheduled as long as Trinity Lutheran School remains open for in-person classes. If Trinity closes, Mornings with Mommy will be cancelled.


~Screening: All children and adults' temperatures will be taken with a touchless thermometer before they enter the building. They will not be permitted to enter if their temperature is 100 degrees or higher after two temperature checks.


~Registration: We will extend the “registration” time to start at 9:20, so there will be more time for families to enter without standing in line. All adults and children will be asked to use hand sanitizer when they enter the basement.


~Face Coverings: Face coverings will be mandatory for all adults as mandated by the governor.


~Limited Attendance: We will limit registration to 6 families or “pods.” Families who are comfortable sharing toys and space with each other will be given the option to be a “pod.” This will allow more children to attend and give parents and children a chance to interact with each other in a small group.


~Daily Schedule: We will follow our usual format for the sessions of Mornings with Mommy. After families register, they will be able to go to a rug on the east side of the basement. We will ask each family to stay on their own rug to maintain social distancing. (There will be no shared toys/books during registration time.) We will start with a devotion and our circle time as a group. After circle time, families will move to the west side of the basement. Separate stations and tables will be set up for each family/pod. Each area will have toys, activities, and craft supplies. At 10:30, snacks will be distributed.


~Social Distancing and Shared Toys: Toys and crafts supplies will only be shared within family/pod groups. Stations/tables will be spaced apart in the basement.


~Cleaning: After each session, volunteers will clean and sanitize highly touched areas in the basement, along with all tables, toys, and supplies.
