Mothers' Day Out

Our Philosophy: 

Mothers' Day Out Preschool is a Christian Early Childhood programs which emphasize the "total child".  Our "total child" emphasis is carried out in love as we give guidance in the dimensions of spiritual, social, emotional, intellectual, and physical growth.  We believe growth in all five areas helps develop the readiness foundation for learning each child needs.

Objectives of Mothers' Day Out Preschool:  
A primary goal for Mothers' Day Out Preschool is that, in response to Jesus' great love and through the power of His Holy Spirit, each child will believe in Jesus as his/her personal Savior, and will praise and glorify Him as Lord.  The children will come to know Jesus as their very special friend, who will never leave them nor forsake them as they are guided to an understanding of themselves and their world.  (SPIRITUAL)

With this as its primary goal, Mothers' Day Out Preschool has the following specific objectives:

  • To help each child live confidently as a beautiful creation of God by encouraging him/her to develop a positive self-awareness. (EMOTIONAL)
  • To provide age-appropriate experiences to promote  exploration, creativity, communication, and concept development.  (INTELLECTUAL)
  • To develop large and small muscle coordination, sensory perception, and good health and safety habit.  (PHYSICAL)
  • To involve the child in a sharing and caring environment in which relationships with others are strengthened  through interaction and through practice of self-control.  (SOCIAL)
