Mother’s Day Out is licensed childcare for children12 months to 3 years old.  Classes are Tuesdays and Thursdays 8:30am-2:30pm.  The Saint Stephen Mother’s Day Out Program was organized in 1972 and continues to provide quality Christian care today.

Mission

The mission of Saint Stephen Mother’s Day Out is to:

    • Provide outstanding childcare.
    • Generate an atmosphere of Christian concern for each family leaving a child in our care.
    • Provide an environment in which good learning experiences can be accomplished.

Daily Structure

Each class is cared for by two teachers.   Lessons, circle time, developmental activities, learning stations  and crafts correlate with monthly Bible themes.  Lessons and activities are developmentally and age appropriate using a hands-on approach to learning.

Daily Activities Typically Incorporate:

    • Free Choice – Time-toys and materials are provided for the children to explore and play with according to their own interests
    • Circle Time – stories, games, finger plays & other activities are shared together in short times throughout the day
    • Large Motor – Development- children are encouraged to run, jump, climb, play with balls, and ride on tricycles  each day on the playground or in the gym
    • Craft Time – children will work on age appropriate art projects that support a monthly Biblical theme or other concepts they are learning 
    • Rest Time – children nap or rest quietly on a nap mat
    • Music – a teacher degreed in music leads the children in fun and Christian songs incorporating movement, rhythm, dance, and instruments
