8th Apr, 10.45am - Tea 'n' Tots Online began
Tea'n'Tots Online came into being at the end of March 2020. On March 11th Tea’n’Tots closed [temporarily] as the country moved into lock down due to Coronavirus.
To maintain contact with the parents, carers and children to build on the positive relationships established since opening in September 2019
To support parents by providing a source of enjoyment and learning for the toddlers at home
To encourage participation with our viewers.
The Episodes go out fortnightly – on Wednesdays. All content is created and filmed in our own homes however, we maintain the sense of identity with WGCC by the opening visuals / photos and images of the Team members. The Programmes are engaging, visually stimulating, pacey and varied. We create the personal touch by including greetings from team members and birthday greetings to the children.
We try to maintain high standards by fortnightly planning and review zoom meetings on Thursdays at 11.00 am.
Episodes are between 12-21 minutes on average in length – they include:
Greetings from the Team Members
Message board- messages from parents
Story Time – Bible story
Tea'n'Tots Art Gallery
Activity segment – making crafts/ quizzes /competitions
