MDO and Preschool

Welcome to Reid Memorial Mother’s Day Out & Preschool where we have been has serving the Augusta area for over 40 years! Here at Reid we strive to teach, support, and care for your child, through the love of Jesus Christ each and every day. Our teachers are dedicated to helping your child grow socially, emotionally, intellectually, as well as spiritually.

Here are a few things that I believe make our program special:mdopage2021- Loving Christian care with emphasis on socialization and learning
- Choices to fit your schedule – choose a one-day, two-day, three-day, four-day or five-day week
- Experienced, loving teachers
- Age-appropriate learning
- Circle time, free play, crafts, story time, music, lunch and recess
- Chapel time — fun songs and Christian learning
- Music time
- Snack and mealtime with friends

As a staff, we participate in ongoing professional development that allows us to stay current with the changes in education. We are always looking for ways to improve and provide the best possible service to you and your child. Safety is our number one concern. We participate in quarterly fire drills, practice routine emergency preparedness plans, and all staff are CPR and First Aid certified. We also use a phone app to provide quick and secure communication between teachers and parents.

We are excited to begin our 49th school year and would love to have you and your child on this journey with us. Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have about our program. At Reid Memorial we are dedicated to provide the best quality services to the students and their families.

Mother's Day Out

Mothers Day Out Policies

Infants to Twos

Infants (Three months by Sept. 1)

Our infant room teachers provide a warm loving atmosphere in which infants are nurtured. Activities in our nursery provide for free play as well as teacher-infant play. (All nursing babies must easily accept a bottle.)

Toddlers (10-17 months by Sept. 1 and 17-24 months by Sept. 1)

Our toddler teachers provide an atmosphere promoting natural development through unstructured activities, free play and group play. Christian ideals are emphasized through practicing good manners and learning to share. Books, songs and object labeling are some of the things introduced to the children.

Twos (Two years old by Sept. 1)

Teachers for the two year olds encourage the development of cooperative play in the classroom and on the playground. The class schedule includes chapel, music and story time on a regular basis. Activities and crafts introduce colors, seasons, holiday and shapes in a fun way. 

Mothers Day Out policies

  • All classes are filled based on the child's age as of Sept. 1.
  • Children under the age of two as of Sept. 1 may only attend two days per week until their second birthday.
  • A registration fee must accompany the application when it is returned to the director.
  • If a class is full, you will be put on a waiting list and no fees will be due until space becomes available. You will be contacted in the order that you were put on the list.
