Parent Tot Program

For Children between 18-36 month (with adult)

Messiah’s Parent Tot class is designed for children aged 18-36 months who are attending with an adult.  The class is one hour in length and is offered on Mondays from 9:10am-10:10am.

Join Miss Cristina in this mini preschool experience, complete with stories, fingerplays, art experiences, singing and snacks.  Children have plenty of time to explore the classroom, participating in age appropriate play while socially interacting with their classmates and teacher.

The children and parents enjoy the opportunity to meet other Messiah families and become comfortable with attending the school before their first independent day of 3 year old pre-school.

Registration forms are available for each 10 week session-fall, winter and spring as well as for a 5 week holiday class during November and December.

Classes available:  Winter and spring registration forms are available below.

  • 9:10-10:10am (Mondays)

Miss Cristina began teaching  at Messiah in 2002.  After taking 6 years off to be with her young children, Cristina has returned to Messiah as a long term sub in Pre K-1 Younger 3's during the spring of 2017 and in Pre K-1 down from January-May in 2018. The Messiah CCC staff  and Messiah families are thrilled to have Miss Cristina rejoin us, as the Monday morning Parent-Tot teacher and classroom substitute teacher.
