Christ Church Day School

MDO kids 2


Christ Church Preschool and Mother’s Day Out was founded in 1995, growing into one of the best preschool programs in the Nashville area.  Our goal is to provide quality care and to prepare your children socially, mentally, physically, and emotionally for Kindergarten and beyond.

Our program utilizes a combination of curriculums, offering a variety of learning opportunities, along with centers, music, art and playtime.  We believe in facilitating the development of the whole child and in nurturing the child’s spirit, mind, body, and self-esteem by incorporating a time of daily Bible stories.  We believe as Proverbs 22:6, states, “Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” 

Our students also enjoy some special added activities such as monthly Color Days, monthly Theme Days, monthly Devotionals, Library Puppet Shows and Reading Days, a benevolent Thanksgiving project, Easter Egg Hunts, Dr. Seuss Week, a parent Christmas program and a Pre-K Graduation program.

Selecting a childcare facility for your child is a very important decision for all parents. It is the first group experience for many young children and sets the stage for future learning. We encourage parents to visit our program, meet the staff if possible, and view the facility. We ask that parents please bring the child (or children) being enrolled with them for the tour. Tours are by appointment: Tuesdays; 10:00 or 10:30 a.m.

Food and Allergies

  • Christ Church Preschool/MDO does not provide any food due to the high number of children with food allergies.
  • You will need to send a snack/beverage and a separate lunch/beverage each day for your child.
  • There are a few times during the year when special snacks are given (i.e. classmate birthdays, special party or theme days).
  • If you would prefer to be notified of these snacks prior to your child receiving them, please use the Snack Notification form found in both the Preschool and MDO applications (see above) and follow up with your child’s teacher on their first day.
