About Our Program

Mother’s Day Out Preschool at Leander United Methodist Church is a place where children and families can learn and grow in a loving environment where God is at the center of everything we do. We pray together, grow together, and learn together.

We provide a great educational experience for preschool children and work to prepare them for Kindergarten with a play-based approach. We also provide support opportunities for the families we serve. We understand the important and difficult role you play at this stage in your child’s life and we work hard to provide you with the support you need to be the best parent possible for your child.
