Mothers Morning Out

COSTSlabel 1 day $70/month
2 days $120/month
3 days $160/month

Mothers Morning Out is designed for children at least 10 months old. We look at this option as a first time preschool experience for tikes, an introduction to being away from mom and dad, and a way to start interacting with other children.

The classroom has lots of push and pull toys, chunky blocks, puzzles, balls, baby dolls, kitchen, and lots of toddler toys.  The Learning Center music teacher sings with the children on Mondays and Wednesdays, and uses shakers, scarves, and bubbles.

This is a toddler play group.  Parents choose to send child one, two, or three days a week.
