The MMPC Children's Ministry is committed to participate in growing God's kingdom beginning with the children of our church and our community. One expression of this commitment is through our Mother's Day Out Program. Our mission is to provide a warm, loving environment devoted to each child's spriitual, emotional, and cognitive development through age appropriate, Christ centered activities.
MMPC Mother's Day Out is a once or twice a week child development program offered in four age specific classrooms. Our infant class offers a caring, open environment for infants to explore and socialize.
Our Toddler 1, Toddler 2, and Preschool classes provide fun and social opportunities for children to engage in developmentally appropriate activities that reflect our Christian based curriculum. (Children must be potty trained for our Preschool class only)
MMPC Mother's Day Out uses the Christian centered A Beka program for our curriculum. A Beka focuses on language development, listening skills, simple counting and number concepts, music, and arts and crafts. Children will be taught Christian hymns, Bible lessons, and memory verses.
In addition, our program will supplement A Beka with the HighReach Learning curriculum. HighReach Learning curriculum is based on knowledge of theory and research in early childhood education, coupled with an understanding of valued best practices. The curriculum incorporates experiences that permit learning through guided play and active discovery. Infants will feel secure to play in a safe, loving, and nurturing environment. They will build self-confidence as they learn to master each new stage of their development with encouraging help from caring teachers. Toddlers will balance between learning centers, individual instruction, group time, and teacher directed activities. The curriculum design recognizes that children learn best through active participation.
