Mothers' Morning Out

What is Live Oak Mother's Morning Out?

Live Oak Mother's Morning Out (MMO) is a drop-in program which provides your child the opportunity for happy interaction with other children and adults while giving you a "morning out." Our MMO teachers are highly experienced - several have been with us for more than 30 years! - and they are carefully chosen to provide a good example and a warm, loving atmosphere for learning and growing. Our teachers provide consistency and a stable environment for your child, as well as a commitment to try their best to give your child the care and guidance they need during the formative years.

While you enjoy your "morning out" your child will participate in a variety of activities, such as:
* Learning to love and trust a caregiver other than his/her own parents
* Learning to share, take turns, plan, work and play with others
* Enjoying stories, pictures and books
* Working with blocks, puzzles, art materials, home-living materials and nature materials
* Running, laughing, exploring and playing on one of the school's outdoor playgrounds

Who Can Attend?

To attend Mother's Morning Out, your child must be six weeks old and not older than four years old, (including children who turn five during the school year). There are six age levels for the classrooms, which are maintained by an appropriate ratio of children to teachers. Older Children are welcome during the summer months.

The classrooms are:
* Six weeks - 12 months
