Kid's Day Out is a two day a week program

Kids Day Out is a ministry of Ooltewah United Methodist church. Our aim is to bless and minister to kids and their families, helping them to develop a foundation of faith in a safe, nurturing atmosphere.

The KDO program operates on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.  We strive to follow the calendar of the Hamilton County Schools as much as possible, especially as it relates to fall, winter, and spring breaks.

Our program is a hands on, developmentally appropriate program that meets the needs of the whole child. We use theme based learning, with a curriculum that is based on the needs of our different age groups.  We help our children develop a lifelong love of learning through exploration, free play, and small and large group activities.  Our Music teacher is here one day a week, and our children have Chapel with the Children’s Minister once a week also.
