Each Wednesday at MOMS, we gather for coffee or tea, a snack and some conversation. We have time to mix and mingle, and get to know one another better, while the children play freely.
Our programming is varied, and driven by our interests; each week we participate in a different activity or discussion. On a monthly basis, a community health nurse or health specialist responds to our questions about individual and family health and safety, and our spiritual mentor guides us through creative prayer and reflection. During the alternate weeks we create a seasonal art project or craft, share together in a spa day, or participate in exercise or parenting and life skills discussions, such as financial literacy or conflict resolution.
Activities and toys are central to our childcare programming; while the adults meet, our children are cared for lovingly. At the end of our day we all eat a delicious lunch, prepared for us by a volunteer cook.
We gather in the hall and living room at Grandview Calvary Baptist Church, 1803 East 1st Avenue in Vancouver. Enter via the kitchen entrance, on the left side of the building, off Salsbury Drive. Once a month, we participate in arts and crafts activities, hosted by Co:Here at 1723-1725 Victoria Drive (at the corner with East 1st Avenue).
We meet weekly during the school year on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 am until 1:00 pm.
