momstown has 6 Program Pillars which define our programs. momstown has always been very focused on the whole child, the complete family and early education - and our pillars give us a strong foundation from which to build that awareness.
momstown's 6 Program Pillars:
Art & Music: developing creative minds
Our flagship monthly event based on our educational curriculum and theme of the month. Mamas and kids create a craft together, enjoy parachute and circle time, free time to socialize.
Tales for Tots
Our monthly book selection is shared in storytime each month, followed by a simple craft and free play time. Sponsored by Scholastic Canada, a book giveaway occurs monthly.
Our mama & baby program is designed for moms with babies aged 0-12 months looking to connect with other moms. Alternating weekly, mamas will discuss topics led by an expert and /or create a keepsake craft in our “Baby Picassos” mini art session.
momstown’s own alphabet crafts come to life in this program focused on early literacy and letter sounds. A different letter is featured each time and incorporated into playtime.
momstown kids get busy in the kitchen creating their own mini meals! Learn fun new ways to create your child’s favourite snacks and meals in this hands-on program.
