MDO (Mother's Day Out) Weekday Preschool
The Mother's Day Out Preschool program at Lake Ridge Baptist Church strives to provide children with creative learning opportunities and social experiences. Our program is flexible; our classes are small and not rigidly structured and are led by qualified teachers who help meet each child's individual needs, encourage independent behavior, and develop creativity.
LRBC's Mother's Day Out (MDO) Preschool has been in existence for more than 30 years and our MDO Director has even hired alumni back as teachers! This cooperative program is a Christian-based ministry teaching children ages 2 1/2 through 5 years of age. Our program is a cooperative program, which requires parents to participate as Parent-Helpers.
