It is back to school time! We hope everyone is having a wonderful summer and we are so excited to see everyone! Below are some important dates and information to get the school year started.

Open house will be Thursday, August 17, 2017 from 5:00-6:00 pm for the students that  are currently registered. You will need to print the forms below, complete them and bring them to open house along with a copy of your child’s immunization record.  You may also bring your child’s supplies and nap mats (if needed for your classroom) to lighten your load for the first day. This is a great opportunity for parents and kids to come and meet their teachers and other friends.

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.

We plan five holiday parties a year: Fall Festival, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's and Easter. Birthdays may be celebrated if the parent coordinates with the teachers in advance.
