Kids Day Out (KDO, also known as Mother’s Day Out) is for children who are mobile between the ages of 15 months to 2 years, 7 months.
Our Kids Day Out children are here for their first school experience. Our goal for them is to provide an opportunity to enjoy time with other children in a loving environment away from mom or dad or their typical caregivers. The play, create, enjoy music and stories, have a morning snack and lunch. It is a chance for them to learn to follow directions with a flexible, but predictable schedule. For many children, it is their first opportunity at socializing with age appropriate peers and then can learn so much by watching and playing alongside other children.
Classes meet from 9:15-1:15.
