Who we are
Mother's Day Out and Christian Preschool (MDOCP) is a state-licensed, faith-based preschool program that teaches children about God and His love for us.
We are committed to our mission of ministering to children and their families while striving for excellence in all that we do.
Dates and Times
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we will begin our Fall semester on September 28th. You can access our 2020-2021 COVID-19 Action Plan here.
MDOCP is in session late August through late May during the public school year. Classes meet Monday through Thursday from 9:00 AM until 2:30 PM. Extended care hours are also available from 8:30 AM to 9:00 AM for those that need extra time in the mornings. A summer session is also offered in June and July if enough interest warrants offering a class.
Three schedule options are available to choose from:
- Monday and Wednesday (two day option)
- Tuesday and Thursday (two day option)
- Monday through Thursday (four day option)
We currently offer nine classes for children aged 3 months to 5 years. Classes meet during the public school year as well as the summer months of June and July (when interest warrants it). Both two and four-day schedule options are available. Children are assigned to a class based on their age as of September 1st and remain in that class for the entirety of the school year.

School Calendar and Class Schedule
Upcoming school-wide events are displayed in the events list on this web page as well as the events list for the individual classroom school pages.
A Typical Class Day
A typical class day begins with children arriving and being signed into their classrooms by their parents or guardians. Each classroom has an individualized schedule specifically designed to meet the needs of their children, but all include the following components (in no particular order):
- Circle Time
- Snack Time
- Playground Time
- Sensory Play
- Bible Story
- Nap Time
- Specials (Music, Movement, and Chapel)
Our program offers weekly specials featuring music, movement, and chapel. The music class teaches singing and basic rhythms. Our movement class includes basic exercises, stretches, and other movements designed to get those wiggles out! Chapel meets twice a week and consists of Bible stories told in a way that little children can comprehend and to help them understand and absorb the Godly lessons being taught.
Our school staff works diligently to foster a loving relationship with each child using positive discipline when needed to redirect children and encourage friendship and a love for learning that will last throughout the child's lifetime.
Each of MDOCP's classroom teachers are here to serve you and your child! Please review our individual classroom pages to learn more about each of our wonderful teachers.
