Mother’s Day Out provides low turnover in caregivers, and a philosophy that promotes the health, safety, and development of the kids in its care, and lots of verbal, social and physical interaction between kids and daycare workers. It also provides age-appropriate toys, as well as books, singing, reading, education, craft time, snack time, exercise (indoor and outdoor) as well as on-the-floor playtime activities.
Two, three and five-day programs are provided Monday through Friday (these days may vary according to registrations received)from 9:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. The program follows the Hampton City School calendar and begins the Tuesday after Labor Day and closes the last Friday before Memorial Day in May.
There are two groups in session on each day. There are no more than 10 children per room. Each group has a salaried worker in charge. A mother’s helper is assigned each day to help in both rooms. The mother’s helper will assist with crafts, snacks and bathroom time. Snacks, cups and napkins are provided.
