Children are helped one on one when needed or as a group.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our goal is to provide high quality, economical childcare in a safe and loving environment. We strive to enrich the lives of children we serve emotionally, intellectually, spiritually, socially, and physically.

A Typical Day

A day a PDO consists of free play until every one arrives, lessons, music class, lunch, gym time or playground time, arts and craft room, story time, and snack.

  • Receive newsletters

Modes of Communication

  • Notes
  • Phone Calls
  • Drop-Off
  • Pick-Up
  • Regular newsletter/printed updates circulated to the whole school


Handling Separation: From the Director

We encourage the parents to send in something that makes the child feel comfortable, such as a blanket, picture or a special toy. some kids will cry when mommy or daddy leaves but most kids will get used to being dropped off within two to three weeks so a little bit longer. We usually will hold the child and play with them to calm them down.
