Mornings with Mommy isn’t preschool and it isn’t childcare; it’s something different. Mornings with Mommy is a fun and easy way for you to enjoy activities with your children and meet other Moms. There will be age appropriate activities for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. And the best part is, we do all the planning, you just sign up! Moms can mingle with each other and enjoy activities with their children including: arts and crafts, sensory table, flannel stories and story time, music, educational toys, and a snack.

About the Director

Hi! My name is Rachel Zahn. I am the mom of a nine year old girl, an active seven year old boy, and a sweet 3 yr old girl! We enjoy baking cookies, playing at the park, swimming, and anything else that involves being on the go. We love meeting other families, so we look forward to Mornings with Mommy sessions. 

I also am privileged to teach preschool at Amazing Grace Lutheran Preschool. So what do I enjoy in my spare time? I know you’ll understand when I say I catch up on laundry and sleep. But I do enjoy photography, trips to the beach, and reading a good book—especially the ones my children put in my lap.

Prior to the adventure of raising my own children, I was privileged to teach first and second graders for two years. Children are amazing! I so admire their endless curiosity, lively spirit, and energy. They are little sponges just waiting to learn about the world around them.

My goal for Mornings with Mommy are that it be a fun, laid-back experience where kids can play and learn with mom, dad, grandma, or whoever their care-giver may be. I often find myself looking for something quality to do with my kids that doesn’t take all day, make a mess, or cost a lot. If you are looking for the same thing, come join us! I look forward to meeting you and your children!
