TLC's Open Gym for Little Ones
Open Gym for Little Ones is designed for children of any ability, preschool age and younger. The goal for this ministry is to enhance physical, emotional, and social development of young children through unstructured play. This ministry also provides fellowship, where mothers, fathers, grandparents, or caretakers can encourage, inspire and share their lives with one another. This is a free ministry as we strive to reach the church’s goal of serving the community.
On a typical week, there are about 30 participants, including children ranging between newborn and preschool and their caretakers. Some of the age-appropriate toys and equipment offered at Open Gym include balls of all kinds and sizes, basketball hoops, a mini trampoline, a slide, soft play mats and blocks for babies, a Thomas the Train ride-on toy, and a small bounce house. Tricycles, scooters, and other push toys without rubber wheels are welcomed. Snacks and coffee are also available.
Open Gym for Little Ones meets every Wednesday from 9:00-10:30 a.m. Please join our Facebook page, Open Gym for Little Ones, for updates and unexpected cancellations. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. A few times throughout the year we collect donations for local non-profit organizations.
