We have a few spots open and nobody on the waiting list!
The Mother’s Day out program is a ministry of St. Luke UMC designed to share love and concern with parents and children.
To a preschooler, MDO means fun – fun while learning, growing, doing and being. Children one year through preschool age are invited to participate in this program which consists of:
- Bible stories
- Interaction with other children
- Listening development
- Motor development
Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays 9:30 a.m. 2:00 p.m.
(maximum two days per child)
Please note, children will not be accepted before 9:30 a.m. as the teachers are preparing the rooms. Coming late to class disrupts activities in progress, so please be considerate and do not arrive past 10 a.m. A late fee of $1 per minute will be charged for each minute the child remains past 2 p.m. This fee is due at the time and should be given to the teacher. If an emergency should arise, a phone call will be expected.
What to bring
Toddlers: diaper bag, bottles, and food, change of clothing, finger food, baby wipes, enough disposable diapers to last the day. All times are to be labeled.
Twos – Fives: lunch in a bag or box, change of clothing. All items are to be labeled.
Please volunteer to provide nutritious snacks during the year. You are asked to donate one non-perishable snack per month for your child’s classroom.
Our fee is $20 a day per child. Fees are due the first week of each month.
A 30 day notice is required prior to withdraw from the program. If notice is not given, you will be required to pay the next month’s fees.
Absences and sickness
When your child is sick, he/she will be more comfortable at home. Please do not expose the other children or the teachers unnecessarily. We ask that your child be free from fever for over 24 hours before returning to MDO.
If your child misses a day due to illness or another reason and the child is on a permanent reservation, their fee for the day is still in effect. Our expenses continue even if the child does not attend.
If your child becomes ill while at MDO, you will be notified to come pick him/her up immediately.
Mother’s Day Out Inclement Weather Policy
If Fayette County Schools are closed due to inclement weather, you will receive a text message by 8am informing you of our plans for the day. If FCPS are operating on a delay, we will operate on our normal schedule. Tuition for one such day a month will be considered a donation to the program. If two or more days are missed, you will be credited the following month for those days.
If Fayette County Schools are running on a delayed schedule, we will operate on our normal schedule.
When Fayette County schools are closed for holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas, MDO will also be closed. You will not be charged for these days. MDO will be open during record days in Fayette County if held on a Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday.
