Parents’ Day Out . . .
. . . a warm, nurturing environment designed especially for preschoolers!
Parents’ Day Out at Southminster nurtures young children and prepares them with all the skills they will need as they grow in a loving, fun, and safe atmosphere! At PDO, children learn and play, day by day, as they are equipped with the social, emotional, and academic skills they will need to be successful in school. Teachers at Southminster are current in First Aid/ CPR and have been background checked. Most of our staff have been nurturing children for 10 years or more. PDO is open to children of all religious traditions and no religious traditions. All the services and events at Southminster are open to PDO families regardless of their background. Children feel so at home at Southminster. Those who want to attend a service to feel renewed on Sunday find it an easy transition.
