Mother's Day Out started out 35 years ago as an outreach program of First United Methodist Church. The goal was to provide a safe and nurturing place where parents could feel good about leaving their children for a few hours while they kept appointments, shopped or just had some time alone. Thirty five years later, Mother's Day Out continues to provide a valuable service to the community, by providing excellent child care on a drop in basis, allowing parents to a few hours off time and offering and environment where young children can grow in mind and body.
