Lakewood MDO: Where the child comes first.



We will begin enrolling students for the 2018-’19 school year soon! On Monday, February 12th, we will begin accepting forms for our existing students. On Monday, March 5th, our open enrollment period will begin.

In order to enroll your child, you must bring a completed enrollment form along with a $40 fee for our Nursery through 3 year old class or a $100 fee for our PreK 4 class to the MDO office on the specified day.

Enrollment is on a first-come, first serve basis. We will enroll students throughout the year based on availability. Once enrolled, there is also a tuition prepay that is due no later than March 31st. Failure to pay this tuition prepay by March 31st will result in the forfeiture of your enrollment.

For your convenience, you can find a copy of our handbook below as well as a link to the enrollment form. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the MDO office at 501-753-6199.

About Our Program:

You can contact us by email or at (501) 753-6199.

"The child first" is a tradition at Lakewood United Methodist Mother's Day Out. Each child is an individual and should grow and develop at his or her own pace. Our staff strives to nurture growth in feelings by loving, accepting and approving of the children for what they are. Good personal relationships are also encouraged so that the child gains independence and learns cooperation.

Our program is designed to give your child a safe, stimulating environment in which to learn and grow. All classes have a structured day, with many learning activities taking place. These learning experiences are planned to challenge your child without exerting undue pressure to perform. We want your child to enjoy the time spent with us.
