*Children should not be brought in before 9:30am as the teachers are preparing for class at this time. We also find that it is generally easier on a child who has trouble separating from parents that the parents not linger in the classroom. Please wait in the foyer area if you would like to make sure that your child has settled in. Check-up calls are welcome.
*Please make sure to sing in on the sheet posted by the classroom door. it is important that we have a phone number where you may be reached in case of illness or emergency. Parental permission is required for pick-up of your child by another party. Identification will be required of the party picking up your child.
*If your child shows signs of illness (fever, nausea, continuous cough, etc.) or has been sick within the past 24 hours, please do not bring them. No medication may be given to your child without written consent. All medication must be given to teachers for dispensation.
*A child who does not attend for a one-month period will automatically be dropped from the program unless prior arrangements have been made with the director.
*Please dress your child in play clothes appropriate to the season. The children will have play time in the gym or on the playground. Younger children require a change of clothing in case of accidents. (Please don't forget extra undies or pull-ups etc... where necessary) If your child is in diapers, please dress them in clothing convenient to changes.
*All children in 3-year-old class MUST be potty-trained.
*Each child should bring a healthy lunch with a drink. Please send food (finger food) that your child can eat by themselves. Please do not send food that must be heated (except for in the toddler class). Babies will be fed according to their ability. All food allergy concerns should be noted on the child's health form. Please label all non-disposable lunch supplies (cups, bibs, etc.) We do encourage the children to give priority to nutritious items provided in their lunch.
*All children ages 3 and under will have naptime (foam mats provided). They will be required to rest quietly during this time so that those who wish to sleep may do so. Please keep in mind that two blankets are generally more convenient and less bulky than a sleeping bag. We do not have facilities to store bedding at MDO.
*If your child wishes to celebrate a birthday at MDO, please make arrangements with the teacher ahead of time.
*Label all articles with your child's name. This includes lunch boxes and contents, bags, pillows, coats, teddy bears, and diapers.
The hours of operation are 9:30am-2:30pm. Your child must be picked up by 2:30pm. Many of our teachers must leave at this time in order to meet their obligations. Your child may also become anxious if you are late. Please call if you will be late (972) 226-0510.

The goal of the program is to provide educational and social opportunities for your child in a loving Christian atmosphere. We will be studying a different Bible lesson each month, singing songs, and teaching fundamentals.
