Parent's Day Out

Parent’s Day Out (PDO) is a Christ-centered program for children who are two-years-old by September 30, 2015 through Pre-Kindergarten at five-year-olds. This is a Christ centered program that intends to show children the love of God through play, songs, Bible stories, and crafts. Children will learn about God’s love as they learn about themselves, their community, and their family and about God’s creation. We want each child to know that he or she is a unique child of God, special in his or her own right.


Parents’ Day Out (PDO) is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from September through May. Note: A child is allowed to attend Parents’ Day Out for a maximum of two days per week per DCFS

Regulations. We accept children who are two years old by September 30 through Kindergarten, 5 years


Hours of operation are Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday from 9:15 a.m.—1:15 p.m.

The ministry program year is September through May. PDO follows the Batavia School District Calendar for holidays, school breaks, and snow days
