Beginning September 2000, Countryside began offering a Mom’s Day Out program for children 12-24 months of age. This program takes place in the “Annex” which is located next to the main building. The days and hours of operation are Monday thru Friday 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. The half day Program 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. is $172/month per weekday of attendance. For example, every Wednedsay would be $172 for the month. The program runs September through May in conjunction with our school calendar for vacations and holidays. (Rate changes to $177/month beginning in August 2017)
Our Mom’s Day Out program has the capacity to accept 9 children. A waiting list will be available if the program fills. As openings occur, families will be notified and welcomed to fill the available slots.
The children come to play in a safe, nurturing environment which encourages growth and development, while their parents get to take a break. The program is designed to allow parents the opportunity to run errands, participate in an exercise program, go to lunch, shopping, or whatever might seem fun and enjoyable at the time.
The Annex has a traditional playroom as well as a well equipped Montessori Classroom.
The children will be taken on short walks on Countryside’s property to see our two resident ponies, Khemosabie and Noelle. As well as a daily period of outdoor play (weather permitting).
Families who wish to participate in the Mom’s Day Out program must send in an application along with a $40 non-refundable application fee.
Tuition is pre-paid monthly at a rate of $172/month for one day per week whether or not the child attends. There are no refunds or deductions if a child misses for any reason. Discounts are given for additional days and siblings. For tuition rates on more than one day please see our tuition page.
Parents must provide disposable diapers, wipes and a change of clothes for their child. As well as a two spill-proof cups. All belongings should be labeled with the child’s name.
In order for our staff to be able to provide the best care for all children enrolled in our program, children must be using a cup (no bottles) if enrolled in the MDO/One Year Old room.
