Mother’s Day Out
Pre-School & Pre-Kindergarten

Holy Spirit Mother’s Day Out provides a loving, happy, Christian environment for children to learn in a healthy, caring atmosphere. Christian education is incorporated into our curriculum through daily prayer and weekly Bible class. Music, Art and Computer are also offered. Our classes have a low pupil-to-teacher ratio which enables individualized attention. Our program considers the developmental needs of each child and emphasizes four areas of growth: emotional, social, physical, and spiritual. Our classrooms are child-oriented and the children learn while having fun through hands-on experiences. Our goal is to present a well prepared happy child to his/her teacher when the child enters Kindergarten.

School Year (August through May) Mondays and Wednesdays 8:45 A.M. – 2:45 P.M.

Starting at ages 6 months – 5 years

What to Bring

All classes:

Food: Please send a balanced snack, lunch, and drink. The Babies and Older Babies rooms have a refrigerator and a microwave to heat up food. Unless your child is in one of these rooms, please do not send food that has to be refrigerated or warmed up.

Clothing: Please send a complete seasonally appropriate change of clothing, including socks, in case of accidents. The children will go outside (weather permitting) every day, so dress them accordingly. Please dress your child in clothes that are “diaper friendly.” If your child is being potty trained, please send them in clothing that is easy for them to maneuver, since dressing skills are a part of potty training.

Rest Time: All ages will rest after lunch. Children in the Baby/ Older Baby room rest in cribs and sheets are provided.

No Toys: Please do not send toys to school.

Labels: Please label everything your child brings to school. This includes lunch boxes, thermoses, food containers, jackets, bottles, pacifiers, blankets, etc.
