Mother’s Day Out
Mother’s Day Out is a ministry of Bayside Baptist Church as we seek to Love God, Live Truth, and Serve Others in our community.
Our program is for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years and is designed to give children a pre-school “preview” while giving moms/dads/guardians a morning off.
MDO offers playtime, snack time, bible stories, singing, craft time, and a whole lot of fun for your child. Each month a new theme is introduced and is implemented in a variety of creative ways.
For questions or to add your child to the waiting list please email Mrs. LaDonna Ralston

A child must be free of the following symptoms for at least 24 hours before teachers are allowed to accept him or her into our Mother’s Day Out program:
- Cold or flu symptoms
- Unexplained rashes, blisters, bumps or swelling
- Any other symptoms that would qualify as illness.
In order to keep the spread of infections down, as well as for your own child’s
best interest, if your child begins to exhibit any of the above symptoms while under the care of our Mother’s Day Out program, you will be expected to return and pick him or her up as quickly as possible. We will welcome them back when they have been symptom free for 24 hours. If your child has been found with lice, we ask that you bring the empty bottle of the shampoo used to treat your child and no nits in the hair before your child can return.
Your child will be given time out (a maximum of one minute per age of child) as discipline. If a teacher feels your child’s behavior warrants further action, the child will be taken to the director for a short time out away from the class.
