Mother's Day Out
We at Jefferson Baptist MDO are pleased to offer a quality and reputable preschool. Our curriculum is child-centered, educationally sound, and developmentally based. Christian teachers are always available to guide, love, and listen to your child. Our teachers plan interesting and engaging activities incorporating songs, stories, skills, arts and crafts while sharing about God’s love. We offer many opportunities to help children in their intellectual, emotional, and spiritual growth.
We have nine classes at MDO. These classes range from youngest toddlers, oldest toddlers, young 2's, older 2's, and 3's. If you have a child currently enrolled in either the youngest toddler, oldest toddler, young 2's, older 2's, or oldest 2's, the we have a class at MDO for your child next year! If your child is completing the year in one of our three 3's classrooms, then they will have completed our program. We have enjoyed sharing these years with you and your child.

At MDO, we want your child to experience God’s love for Him through loving relationships and meaningful encounters. Because each child is growing physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually, we provide a variety of positive learning activities. Young children learn through active exploration of their environment through self-initiated and teacher-selected activities. Our early childhood environment will provide opportunities for your child to explore materials, engage in concrete activities, and interact with peers and adults.
In order for children to reach their full potential during these early learning years, it is important that we provide an environment that promotes growth and learning. Our curriculum will be guided by Louisiana’s Birth to Five Early Learning & Development Standards (ELDS). This curriculum is child-centered, educationally sound, and developmentally based.
Learning centers are clearly defined areas/activities within a classroom where children can explore and learn with hands-on materials. Research shows that young children learn best through active, hands-on play. These centers engage children and make learning fun. Children manipulate materials, explore ideas, discover consequences, build, create and express themselves through art. To parents it may look like children are “just playing” but this is play with a purpose. Through carefully planned learning centers, children learn important concepts and life skills in ways that are meaningful to them. For deeper learning to occur, children need time to manipulate materials and process what they have learned.
Christian teachers are always available to guide, love, and listen to children. Teachers plan interesting activities, and they share songs, stories, pictures, and Bible thoughts while teaching Bible truths on the level of each age. Enrollment is limited so that teachers can better meet the needs of individual preschoolers.
The day's schedule for children two years old and older includes a balance of both vigorous and quiet play, indoor and outdoor activities(weather permitting) and small group and individual experiences. The schedule usually includes the following:
