PDO | Program Information

A Letter from our Director:

"Our Parent’s Day Out program in Nolensville, TN serves as an extension of the SPKids children’s ministry at Southpointe Community Church. Our program is designed to bring families into a life-changing encounter with the Kingdom of God while encouraging preschool children to grow spiritually, academically, emotionally, physically and socially. While we are preparing children with the education skills necessary for Kindergarten, our highest priority is to show them Christ’s love and teach them that Jesus cares about every detail of their lives.We believe that children are whole persons created in the image of God – valued for who they are, not who they are becoming. Our teachers and staff are intentional about relationships with our children and their families. Children are surrounded by an atmosphere that reflects God’s truths. They are all known and loved.We strive to work with your family in partnership to love and teach your child. Please feel free to talk with your child’s teacher, the PDO Director, or SPKids Director at any time."

CURRICULUM

Children will be following a Bible-based and educational curriculum that focuses on learning through play and educational activities that teach the skills necessary for Kindergarten. Our academic curriculum is tailored to assist in preparing your child for kindergarten readiness. We also use The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones to help children understand that each story in the Bible is part of a bigger story - the story of how God loves His children and comes to rescue them through Jesus.

FOOD

Snacks: Children are to bring their own snacks.
Lunch: Children are to bring their own lunch. It should be a complete meal that does not need to be microwaved or refrigerated.  *WE ARE A PEANUT FREE FACILITY* Please do not send anything that contains peanuts in your child’s lunch. This is to protect the other children that may have a peanut allergy. You will be notified by your child’s teacher if there are other allergy concerns in that class and that food will be restricted from the classroom.

NAP TIME / REST

Children in the 1's and 2's classrooms will take naps each afternoon.

OUTSIDE PLAY

Weather permitting, the children will have outside play each day.  If playing outside is not appropriate, children will have group play-time to work on large motor skills.

TOILET TRAINING

Children must be toilet trained (can verbalize when they need to go to the bathroom) before entering our 3 year old Kangaroos/Wallabies class.

SCHEDULE A TOUR

In the Fall, new families can schedule a tour of our facility before registration opens up.  
The link will go live HERE at that time.
