Mother’s Day Out Program (6 months – 2 years old)

splash dayWhat is Mother’s Day Out? Clear Lake Church of Christ Mother’s Day Out (MDO) is a part-time child care program for children aged 6 months through two years old. Age is determined as of September 1, 2017. (Please see our Preschool information for 3 and 4-year-olds). Our program has operated since 1984 with the purpose to provide a loving Christian atmosphere for parents to leave their children and, at the same time, give children opportunities to develop cognitively, physically, socially, and spiritually.

When is Mother’s Day Out? Mother’s Day Out takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00am to 2:00pm, September through May. We generally follow CCISD for school holidays and closures.

What will my child do during the day? The infant class follows the individual child’s routine. Other classes follow a daily schedule. Chapel is held weekly and children attend a daily enrichment class focusing on music, movement, and art. We also have special events throughout the school year. See our 2017-2018 MDO Calendar for more details.polar sensory

How many children are in each class? We believe it is important for students to have one-on-one attention from teachers. Therefore, we have set limits on the number of students in each class to allow more teachers per student than required for state-regulated daycare facilities. Our ratios are:judie and audrey

Infants 1:3

Toddlers 1:4

Two-Year-Olds 1:6

Each age group participates in activities designed to stimulate their cognitive development, motor skills, and social learning. We write our curriculum specifically for each class and our students benefit from lesson plans that are tailored to their strengths and weaknesses.

What should my child bring each day?

-Diapers and wipes

-A complete change of clothes

-A lunch with drink (that does not need to be kept hot or cold)

-Nap items (mini crib sheet for infants, playard sheet for toddlers, nap mat for 2’s)
