2017-2018 Parent's Day Out


Claire's Christian Day School offers a Mother's Day Out program each weekday from 9:00-3:00 for children aged four months to three years. Age-appropriate curriculum combined with a nurturing, loving environment provide a strong foundation for the child's continuing emotional and academic development. Activities focus on basics such as letters, shapes, and numbers, along with free play and outdoor exercise. A special music teacher visits the young and older 2s classes twice each week. Children will bring lunch, rest, and have tons of fun, benefiting from social interaction with other children. A brief outline of each class is as follows:


Babies (4-12mo) - There are two caregivers to a maximum of eight babies. A typical day in the baby room consists of floor play, going outside in strollers, music time, lunch, nap, and lots of love.


Young Toddlers (13-17mo) - There are two caregivers to a maximum of 10 toddlers. The day is similar to the babies with added finger plays, puppets, age appropriate toys, and music. Some are walking and some are not. Cribs are used in this room for napping.


Older Toddlers (18-24mo) - Two caregivers to a maximum of 11 toddlers are in this room. All are walking and go outside to the smaller playground. Finger foods are preferred. This class does art projects in addition to the activities in the young toddler class. Music and story telling classes are also provided.


Young 2's (24-30mo) - Two caregivers to a maximum of 14 children. Similar to the older toddler room, with emphasis on projects and socialization. Children nap on mats and use the smaller playground.


Older 2's (30-36mo) - Two caregivers to a maximum of 12 children. An added emphasis on projects, creativity and social interaction help ensure the child is prepared for preschool. As in the young 2's classroom, these children nap on mats and visit the smaller playground.

guidelines. Some children are placed in classes that best fit the needs of the child and the parents. Consequently, age groups will overlap.

You are, of course, encouraged to communicate with the teacher any concerns or questions you might have. There will be a formal conference in January to discuss your child's progress and placement for the following year.

After School Programs for the Fall / Spring


Stay & Play - 12 to 3, Monday through Friday - open to all students

Children will eat lunch, have a rest period, play in the room, and play outside.


Enrichment with Mrs. Janss: Cross-Curricular Connections
- 12 to 3 Mondays through Thursdays (you may elect any or all days depending on availability)

This class is open to Kindergarten bound children from Mrs. Gill's and Mrs. Janss' class.


The Big 3 Goals of Enrichment:
          1. To expand on the morning curriculum by applying those concepts to other                     subjects.
          2. To build the student's stamina and attention span to be Kindergarten ready
          3. To build the student's self-confidence and interest in learning

Curriculum: The student will take their newly acquired skills from their morning class and apply them to fun and exciting subjects such as Science, Social Studies, Math, Reading, Art, Music, Drama and Technology. Every day will have different activities, but will also be part of a larger unit of study. Units of study change about every month. Projects run from Monday to Monday, bot Monday to Tuesday. This insures that the student's experience is organized and consistent. Click here for a flyer on the enrichment program at CCDS.
