Mother's Day Out

Epiphany Lutheran Church             5515 West Broadway             Pearland, TX 77581                281-485-7896


“And He took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.”

 GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

 

The mission statement of Epiphany Lutheran Church is to help people grow into a living relationship with Jesus and His Church through worship and fellowship; to understand God’s purpose for their life through Bible study and prayer; and to go forth as Jesus’ Ambassadors to care for and share His Good News with all people.

 

Epiphany Lutheran Church Mother’s Day Out is licensed by the state and was established to help meet the needs of young families in the Pearland community.  It is our calling and privilege to provide a program where children are cared for in a loving and secure environment, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ through everyday activities. Children attend chapel in the sanctuary on a weekly basis where they experience worship and singing.

 

We are committed to the belief that “children learn by doing.”  In partnership with parents, we provide well balanced, age appropriate activities, including the introduction of colors, numbers, shapes and the alphabet.  Social skills are a very important part of being a preschool child.  Classroom activities focus on the importance of sharing, listening and cooperative play.

Our Pre-K 4 classes focus on preparing the children for Kindergarten in a variety of fun ways. This includes encouraging independence, expanding fine and gross motor skills, reading readiness, and math/science concepts.  Circle time is used to introduce new concepts, including the calendar, show and tell, student of the week, etc.  Creativity is promoted through the use of centers, art and music.

Dear Parents,


The school year end is upon us, and it seems to have gone by in a flash!   The kids will enjoy the last few weeks of MDO with more fun activities and pizza!  


Farm week was so much fun!  Children were able to pet, hold, and brush the animals.  Thank you Nightsong Petting Zoo for bringing your furry friends to visit!  The kids (and teachers) had a blast on the hayride!  Thank you Danny Underwood (Farmer Dan) for making sure we had a hayride to enjoy! 


All classes will periodically have picnics and popsicles on pretty days throughout the month!


On Wednesday and Thursday, May 20 & 21 all classes in the AFLC building  (rooms 101 - 104) will enjoy a WATER DAY!  We will have lots of water activities set up outside, a “car wash”, popsicles and more!  In case of rain, we will have activities and fun in the gym.  More information to come from your teachers.

 

Our last days of MDO will be Thursday & Friday, May 28 & 29. These are NOT early release days!!  To celebrate the end of school, we will be having pizza parties!  Please pay your teacher $3 to cover pizza, dessert and drinks. 

 

We want to thank you all for your patience during our restoration of the classrooms.  The kids were SO amazing and went with the flow!  Lots of them told us that this was the best time ever!  It was like a week of game days! 

 

 Tentative fall 2015/2016 OPEN HOUSE is scheduled for Thursday, August 27.  First days of MDO are Tuesday and Wednesday, September 1 & 2.  Please refer to our website for additional updates, as well as a link to our SHUTTERFLY site.  www.epiphanypearland.org/mdo.  MDO updates are also on our FACEBOOK page.  Just go to our FACEBOOK page and LIKE us!

A reminder for children returning in the fall:  Our policy states that CHILDREN THAT ARE 3 YEARS OLD MUST BE IN THE PROCESS OF ACTIVE AND POTTY TRAINING.  CHILDREN ENTERING THE 4 YEAR OLD CLASSES (AFLC building, rooms 101 & 104) MUST BE COMPLETELY POTTY TRAINED. 


VBS registration opened Sunday, April 26. You can register online (shiningthelight.org) or fill out forms located in the narthex.  VBS is scheduled for June 15-19 for children ages 3 yrs (that are fully potty trained) thru 5th grade.  Questions about VBS, please call the church office at 281-485-7833

 

We want to thank you for sharing your children with us. We had a fun year at MDO and look forward to seeing most of you next year.  Best of luck to those moving on to Kindergarten! God’s blessings for a safe and fun summer!!
