Helpful Info About MDO

The MDO classroom distribution is based on the age of the child as of September 1st of the current school year, not developmental skills, If there is a strong concern by the parent about his/her child’s developmental maturity, exceptions can be made if there is classroom availability. *Your child will remain in the same class for the entire academic school year.

Our Teachers

Our employees must first be Christians and meet approval by the Central Baptist Church Staff before any interviewing can take place. The hiring process includes a criminal history background check. Our employees are required to have 15 hours of training and staff development per school year. They are also required to remain current with their Infant/Child CPR certifications.

Our Curriculum

We will be using the KidMin Lil'K Bible Curriculum and various Preschool Unit Books for our 2017-2018 academic school year. The Bible curriculum will offer fun lessons that will provide your child with a foundation to develop a lasting relationship with God. There is a Bible story, music, bible verse, and age appropriate activities with each unit for all of our ages beginning with the 1 year old classes. In addition, we will provide opportunities for your child to work and play together as a group in a friendly Christian environment, to gain new skills, to form good habits, and to learn to be a responsible member of a group. Curriculum calendars will be posted at the beginning of the school year.

Our Day

Your child’s day will begin with a warm welcome, morning snack, and opening activity. Beginning with our 1 year old age group, each class will rotate through Recess, Teaching Time, Bible/Music Time, and Sensory/Art Time. Our art projects will be hands-on and age appropriate. Lunch follows the rotations, then on to nap time. Each child is encouraged to rest quietly before preparing for pickup. Remember, each day is different and these schedules are meant to be flexible to meet the needs of the class. At the beginning of the year, a rotation schedule will be posted.  Special activities and parties will be announced throughout the year.

Discipline

Redirection is the method used most often. If a problem with a child continues to arise, our policy is to discuss the problem with the child and to separate him/her from the situation or others if necessary. If a severe or recurring problem exists, parents will be notified. We reserve the right to remove any child from the MDO program who consistently causes harm to himself or others.

Registration/Availability

If you are interested in enrolling your child and are new to the program, please contact the MDO office to check availability. Once availability is determined, you will be given a registration form that requires a fee to hold your spot, or be added to our waiting list (no fee required). We will need your child’s date of birth to determine availability.

Our Semesters

Fall/Spring

Begins the Wednesday after Labor Day in September and ends the middle of May. We coordinate with the Bryan and College Station School District Calendars. Also, we follow their closings in bad weather and emergency situations. You are registered for Fall and Spring semesters with one registration fee in the Fall.

Summer

We meet for a short summer semester, the month of June. There are 8 days in our Summer semester.

Healthy, Happy Children

The health and well-being of your child is of critical importance to us. Please do not bring a sick child to the program. If a child shows any signs of illness, the parent will be contacted. In order to maintain a well-child environment, it will take the cooperation and courtesy of all involved.
