Mother’s Day Out

An outreach to families in the Houston community.

Bethel’s Mother’s Day Out is a weekday program with the primary objectives of providing parents with Christ-centered child-care for their preschool-aged​ children. Thursdays and Fridays from 9:30 am – 2:30 pm. 

Goals & Objectives

The goals of Mother’s Day Out are:

Facilities

Bethel’s Mother’s Day Out has wonderful toddler and preschool facilities provided by the church. Each classroom is bright and cheery, inviting children to have fun. Bethel offers two age-appropriate playgrounds where motor skills can be developed.

Staff

The teaching staff is highly qualified. In order to provide loving care, individual attention and instruction, each class has a lead teacher and a helper. In the case of the toddler classes – a lead teacher and two helpers. Every teacher and helper attends an educational training workshop annually and is CPR certified.

Curriculum

Each class follows an age-appropriate Bible curriculum. We believe that very young children can learn the principles of the gospel when taught at their level. Monthly themes and enrichment activities are also included (see “Class Description” for more details). Our daily program includes: Bible stories and related crafts, playtime (in and outside), music and rhymes, quiet table activities, lunch and rest time.

Summer Program

Bethel offers a 4-week summer program for ages 9 months to 5 years. In addition to the program activities listed above, the summer also includes activities like splash days, sandcastle building, cooking, and more.
