Parent's Day Out
Our Parent’s Day Out (PDO) program provides a loving environment for children ages 2-5 to play, learn, and grow while providing parents three hours to use as they like!
PDO helps prepare your child for the transition into preschool and kindergarten. Our multi-age classrooms provide opportunities for children to share, take turns, cooperate with their peers, and become more responsible. We are not a drop-in program — when you sign up, your child’s spot is guaranteed through May.
Potty training is not required. Our staff specialize in helping children with separation anxiety feel more comfortable away from parents. Our PDO program is open to all in the community, regardless of church membership or attendance.
Registration opens in March 2023 for currently enrolled families and GLC members; PDO registration opens to the community the first week in April.
