Children's Day Out (CDO)

The Children's Day Out program is designed to be a time for children 18 months to 3 years to come together in a safe, fun and comfortable environment where they have opportunities to interact socially with their fellow classmates.  Building positive self-esteem and respect for others is very important in these early years.  The teachers and staff will help to nurture these values by guiding the children as they interact with their peers.

CDO runs from 9am-12pm


Monday through Friday


The CDO program allows for the parents to design a schedule that works for their individual needs and desires for their child. At registration, parents choose a schedule for their child from one day up to five days a week.

Beach Room: Our bright, yellow room, with sea decorations, is an area of play, opened at a certain time, as a special part of the day. A housekeeping section, block buiding area, tool benches, and a book nook, are some of the highlighted extas in this fun room. 


Gym Time: The children will have an opportunity to go to the gym to play each day. This gross motor play time will involve tricycles, bouncy balls with handles, varying sizes of balls, square scooters, hula hoops, foam puzzls, etc.

When it is appropriate, the outdoor playground will be used.
