Parent’s Day Out (PDO) is an outreach program of Grace United Methodist Church and reflects the mission statement of “We Gather in Christ, We Grow in Love, We Go to Serve.” As an Outreach Ministry of Children’s Ministry, we serve families in our Grace Church congregation, Naperville, and surrounding communities. We follow the District 203 school calendar.

The program offers a caring, nurturing, and safe environment for your child. While your child is at Grace's Parent’s Day Out, they are learning through play in a fun and engaging way. Children have the opportunity to build socialization skills and other developing skills such as number, color, and shape recognition as they learn through play.

Parent/guardians register their child to attend one or two days per week, August to May, from 9:00AM to 1:00PM. 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)

  • Cooperative free play

  • Diaper changes/bathroom


Tuition is $30/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.
