Just a quick note to say we’ve had such a good experience with [son] in the nursery this fall… everyone has been so welcoming and friendly. He’s happy to be dropped off, and seems to enjoy himself. ... Mount Olivet is such a special place to us, it’s so neat to have it be a place [son] talks about – and enjoys being as well.

We will play, read, and sing at this weekly faith-based hour-long class developed by a children librarian and early childhood specialist. Babygarten focuses on reading, rhyming, and activities. It is more than a playgroup or storytime - Babygarten provides pre-literacy skills for children in a faith-based environment. Amy Porthan, early childhood educator and Minneapolis nursery coordinator, will guide parents with activities and discussion on how to include God and faith with their child. Cost: $72/6 week session (includes all materials) Questions: Amy Porthan 612.767.2224 amyp@mtolivet.org
