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.

Hours and Tuition

MDO is open on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 9 am to 2 pm.  We are closed any day that the North Little Rock School District  is closed including summer, winter break, spring break, and holidays.

Each classroom follows a schedule each day, with  circle time, free play, and gym/playground playtime.  Toddlers through PreK 4 have enrichment time on Tuesday and Thursday, which includes Spanish and Creative Movement.  PreK 3 and 4 also have Chapel on Monday.
