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 8:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m. The program runs September through May in conjunction with our school calendar for vacations and holidays. Children must be enrolled a minimum of two-days per week.
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, Apple Jax and Thunder. 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 $75 non-refundable application fee.
Tuition is pre-paid monthly as listed on the tuition chart. There are no refunds or deductions if a child misses for any reason. Discounts are given for additional days and siblings.
Parents must provide disposable diapers, wipes and a change of clothes for their child. 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.
