A Message From the Director

August 10, 2020

Dear Day School Families, We are excited about getting our school year started on September 8th. We wanted to update you on some school news as we are busy making modifications to our program so we can adapt to our latest COVID guidelines from state licensing and local health authorities. Some of the changes for the year will be in how you “Meet Your Teacher”. This will be done virtually with each family. Drop Off and Pickup procedures will be modified. Families will be received outside of the building and children will be taken to their class. Everyone will have a temperature check and health screening at drop off. There are restrictions in place for what children can bring into school and in how our classes move within the school. Our cleaning procedures will also be intensified and procedures will be in place in the event a staff member or child becomes ill. Letters will be sent out at the end of this week, detailing each of these areas.

Also, please note that due to state guidelines for health and safety purposes, the mixing of children is strongly discouraged. It is our priority to provide the safest environment we can for these little ones. It is the MDS Boards decision to temporarily pause morning and afternoon extended care. This will be routinely reevaluated as we get started with the new school year. As we move ahead, we are truly looking forward to a great school year and being with the children again! We will go about our planning like we always do. God has good things planned for us!

Sincerely,

Ms. Wanda, Director

 About the Day School

Methodist Day School (M.D.S.) is a Christian preschool for ages 12 months through kindergarten located in First Methodist Conroe. The Day School operates Monday through Thursday 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. from September through May (following the Conroe Independent School District calendar as closely as possible). Morning and afternoon extended care program is offered. (see times below)

M.D.S. has provided quality experiences for children for over three decades. Our program is designed to provide a Christian atmosphere for the cognitive, physical, social/emotional, and spiritual development of children. M.D.S. serves children of all races, nationalities, and religious creeds, ages 12 months through Kindergarten. 

Emphasis is placed on developing each child's self-esteem and the fulfillment of their highest God-given potential. The staff is experienced in working with young children and receives training in the field of early childhood education throughout the school year. They value the needs of each child and strive to provide opportunities for each child to grow spiritually, emotionally, physically, intellectually, and socially.  

During the school year many events and activities are planned for the children such as Pumpkin Patch, Thanksgiving Feast, Pictures with Santa, Pajama Day, Puppet Show, Nana Puddin, Police Department, Fire Department, Houston Children Museum Planetarium, and Splash Day.

In a Christian, safe and healthy environment, our school provides many opportunities for large and fine motor development, active and quiet times, and cooperative as well as individual play. Well-equipped classrooms with learning centers are designed to help young children learn through discovery and play. An outdoor playground and gym give children opportunities to develop their motor skills. 

GOALS:
Our teachers help each child become a self-reliant, secure child of God by showing children they are loved and accepted as individuals. Through guidance and a caring discipline, our staff fosters a positive self-concept in children.  

Safe Sanctuary Policy
