zion's hill summer playdate

Zion’s Hill Preschool is inviting families with preschool aged children to visit on Thursday, July 30 from 10-11:30 a.m. for the school’s first annual ‘SUNsational Summer Playdate,’ featuring a live outdoor musical performance by Fairfield County children’s musician Tom Weber. Known for his enthusiasm and playfulness, Tom uses a variety of instruments and puppets which will get little ones laughing, dancing and singing.

The complimentary community-wide event celebrates the joys of summer. Children can enjoy the school’s playgrounds with new friends and grown ups can meet other parents with young children. Organizers say parents can see what “purposeful play” means at Zion’s Hill Preschool, and they’ll show how children develop gross motor skills, musical appreciation, and develop social connections.

Snacks, refreshments, and fun for all ages will be served. Please RSVP to the school’s new director, Danielle Briody, by phone at 203.762.9620 or by email.
