Parent’s Day Out
We welcome families and help children grow.
Our purpose is to provide your child with a nurturing, safe, and loving Christian environment that will further their emotional, social, mental, spiritual, and physical development. We strive to offer more than just a “day out”—our goal is to instill a love of learning, work on building relationships, and foster independence in every child. The program is a church related ministry and we strive through actions and teachings to give our children basic Christian concepts. We desire for each child to feel and experience God’s love.

Classrooms and Curriculum
Who will be taking care of my child?
How many children are in each class?
What curriculum is used?
Our programs use the High Scope, multi-age and multi-topic curriculum that develops essential readiness skills through play and investigation while meeting a child’s individual needs. It combines standards-based learning experiences, teaching support materials and family connection components. This curriculum is used for our Toddlers, Twos, Threes and Pre-K classes.
We also focus on Bible truths each month while attending Chapel each week and learning a monthly Bible verse. The children also participate in 30 minutes of music class, gym time and outdoor play. Our program will also participate in three school field trips (Read Mobile, Kids on the Block, and The Chattanooga Zoo).

“Our child has loved every one of his teachers (and so have we). All the teachers are wonderful.”
“The teachers have always provided us with detailed feedback concerning our child.”
“We have been amazed by our child’s development because of this program.”
“When my family moved to town we were leaving behind a PDO program that we really liked and trusted at our previous home church. We were concerned about finding a new PDO in the middle of the school year that would meet our expectations. The Hixson UMC PDO program more than met our expectations. At school my daughter started making friends quickly and learning new things every single week. The program was well designed and thorough in the different developmental skills that were taught. I have decided to keep my daughter in the PDO program next year instead of sending her to a traditional preschool program because I know that the leadership will be certain that my child is ready to excel when she reaches Kindergarten. And the best part is that I know she is in a strong Christian environment where the teachers are believers who are helping to develop and raise up more believers!”
“The program is wonderful. The teachers do an excellent job and my son loves going to school here. We look forward to another great year.”
