Thank you to Eastminster Church and their Kids Day Out program for sponsoring this guide and for providing educational childcare for our community.
Kids Day Out Programs are the perfect opportunity for mom to run errands, get some work done, or take a class – alone! Several churches in the area offer these programs which give busy moms extra time to get things done while the kids are in a positive learning environment. Below are a few that readers have suggested!

Program Description: Sometimes moms need a few uninterrupted hours to themselves – to run errands, read a book, grab coffee or even just to rest. Kid’s Day Out gives busy moms extra time without active children one morning a week. We welcome kids with the love of Christ to a morning of fun in an energetic learning environment with active and quiet play, time with a dedicated music teacher, crafts, stories, listening time, and even snacks and time for lunch. Summer Kid’s Day Out is Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Fall Kid’s Day Out is 9:15 a.m. – 1:15 p.m. For more information and to download an enrollment form, visit eastminster.org/kdo.
