Education Philosophy

Mother’s Morning Out is an outreach program of the Fairview United Methodist Church.
The curriculum content at MMO is designed to achieve long range goals for children in
social, emotional, cognitive and physical development.
This is done by introducing age-appropriate learning objectives through a
balance of teacher and child facilitated skill building activities.
The learning objectives are adapted from the Center for Applied Research
in Education’s Early Childhood Curriculum.

Daily class time includes an age-appropriate monthly theme-based curriculum,
a Bible story, art and crafts, music, and indoor and outdoor play opportunities.

Registration opens every year in March.
Call the office to inquire about mid-year openings or to be placed on the wait-list.
