Parent's Day Out (PDO) is a childcare program for children ages one to four years old on or before September 1. As an outreach ministry, we serve families in our Grace Church congregation, Naperville, and surrounding communities and follow the District 203 school calendar.  Children have an opportunity to create, sing, learn, and play in a Christian, nurturing, caring, and safe environment.


Parent/Guardians register their child to attend one or two days per week, August-May, from 9 a.m.- 1 p.m. Our program uses the Children's Center entrance (a secured entrance for the children's area). Children do not need to be toilet trained.  All classrooms have changing tables and bathrooms.

Experienced and dedicated staff provide a 1:4 ratio for one to four-year-olds. Our staff receives yearly training and certification in First Aid/CPR.

A typical daily schedule at Parent's Day Out includes:

  • Music

  • Indoor or outdoor gross motor time (weather permitting)

  • Snack--provided by PDO

  • Crafts

  • Circle Time (storytelling, finger plays, Bible story)

  • Free play

  • Diaper changes/bathroom

Tuition is $27/day, per child, and is due the first week of each month. Payments may be made in cash or by check payable to Grace United Methodist Church. Please see application form for applicable fees. Necessary forms can be found via the links below.
