Beginning January 9, Kids Day Out will be held
at St. Marks United Methodist Church, 701 Mississippi Avenue.

Teacher Ratio and Experience
Our child to teacher ratio is no more than 5:1. Our teachers and staff work closely together to insure a safe and supportive atmosphere for your child. Teachers are required to have several years experience working with young children. In addition, our teachers are given background checks and are required to have current first aid and CPR certification and training.
