Each November, we are reminded to be thankful. The Qur’an teaches us to always be thankful and show gratitude to God.

This November and December, the MCC Happy Heart’s sessions revolve around being grateful for the people and things that Allah has given us.

In our toddler playgroup sessions, we develop love for our faith and Allah through stories, singalong, snack, craft, and parachute time.

In this is a four-week session on Monday or Wednesday mornings, we will focus on one topic each week:

  • Week 1 : Family and community
  • Week 2 : Food and Water
  • Week 3 : Qur’an
  • Week 4 : Nature

Sessions are 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. and spots are limited. The cost per child is $65.00 for the entire session or $20/weekly session. We meet in the Kindergarten area on the MCC School Side entrance (Suite 100).

  • Monday Sessions: Nov. 18, Dec. 2, 9, & 16 (no class Thanksgiving week)
  • Wednesday Sessions: Nov. 20, Dec. 4, 11, 18 (no class Thanksgiving week)

We also have a special pop-up class for working parents from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, December 14. $20.00
