Come learn, laugh and love with us!
At the Journey Bible Fellowship Mother’s Day Out, we learn about God and each other while exploring colors, shapes, letters and numbers. We laugh a lot with our new friends as we play together in ways that reach the whole child and we grow to love ourselves, our families, our friends and all God’s creatures.

Play is an important part of learning in early childhood education. At The Journey MDO, we use play experiences to incorporate language, math, science and religion into our learning. We also help develop fine motor skills through play with manipulatives and various art and craft projects. Outdoor play also helps develop gross motor skills. The various educational themes throughout the year are enhanced by special events such as a visit from our firefighters, our own holiday celebrations and splash days in the spring. Our curriculum is thematically organized and includes learning experiences in the areas of:
- Social and emotional development
- Physical education
The children will enjoy a group setting as well as individual learning experiences in a Christian environment.

Redirecting the children to use acceptable behavior and setting clear limits are part of positive guidance techniques. Children are taught to express their feelings in a socially acceptable manner. If disruptive or dangerous situations do occur, brief time out periods are used in the classroom or school office.
Parents will need to provide a nutritious lunch for their child each day. We ask that the lunch consist of food that is manageable for your child. If your child’s lunch needs to be kept cold please put an ice pack in their lunch box. We do not have a refrigerator or microwave oven available for the children’s lunches
Comfortable, easy to manage play clothes are the best for school. Sneakers are most appropriate for running and playing outside and inside. While we make every effort to protect your child’s clothing from various art projects and outside play, clothes can still become damaged. Please dress your child accordingly. All children will need a complete change of clothing, even if they are potty trained (underwear, pants, shirts, and socks). Please clearly label all clothing items and bring them in a backpack each day.
