MOTHERS DAY OUT
Providing a loving, nurturing educational experience for children and a refreshing helping hand for parents.
WHAT IT IS
The Shepherds Flock Mother's Day Out program provides a fun, safe, educational, Christian environment for children ages 8 months old - 5 years old. We have 31 children in our 2 pre-school classes (2 - 3 years old and 4 - 5 years old) and 8 children in our nursery class (8 months - 2 years old). We have 7 teachers on staff.
We have a monthly Bible verse to set the theme. In our pre-school room, we focus on several letters each month covering the entire alphabet by the end of the year. Our day consists of free play; circle time including reading, singing, basic educational concepts (letters and phonics, numbers, colors, shapes); craft time; snack time; recess; lunch; fine motor skill activities. A day in the nursery consists of free play, snack time, recess, arts and crafts, lunch, and the older children in the nursery join the pre-school class for circle time.
We are currently located in the new Legacy Life Building on Ave M. The pre-school class is in the large classroom at the end of the building. The nursery is located in one of the classrooms at the north end of the hallway, and middle aged children are located in the last classroom of the hallway.
HOURS OF OPERATION
We meet on Tuesdays & Thursday from 9:00 AM TO 2:00 PM, and we try to follow the Hondo ISD calendar. (We are not open in the summer). Our program begins in August.
Mother's Day Out is for children ages 8 months old - 5 years old. To give a general idea, we might have 10 children in our middle class (2 years old - 3 year old) 21 children in our pre-k (class 4-5 years old) and 7 children in our nursery class (currently 13 months - 2 years old). We have 7 teachers on staff.
