In accordance with recommendations from local and state health officials, Parents’ Day Out is offering a limited program during the spring of 2021, with reservations required. For more information about the PWUMC response to COVID-19 and the latest updates, please go to our dedicated page.
The Platte Woods United Methodist Church PDO program is in its 52nd year of providing quality childcare to children ages 6 weeks to pre-K. The PDO program fits the needs of children of various ages. From our nursery care through pre-K, you can be assured that your child will receive care in a professional, clean environment. As your child grows, the educational opportunities at PDO increase. During the mornings, teachers share in crafts, reading and other fun learning exercises with their students. Afternoons are spent in free play, allowing children to have fun and develop their social skills.
PDO offers professional childcare in a comfortable, age-appropriate and clean environment, and is a state-inspected facility. All children ages 3 and up must be potty-trained within one month of their third birthday. For more information about PDO, please email or call Miranda Wingett (816-741-2006).
