OKC Guide to MDO, Preschool and Daycare


Trying to find the best place to send your child while you are away can sometimes be quite difficult.  As moms (and dads!), we want to find a place that will love and nurture our child while we go to work or take a much needed parenting break.  Our post for questions you should ask can also help with knowing the right questions to find the right facility!  **Please note:: OKCMB does not endorse any specific business or location in this guide, this is to help in your own selection.**

This is a comprehensive list that we put together with input from our Neighborhood Playgroups as well as our own research.  Please let us know if we missed one – we would be happy to add it. Share with your friends who may need this post so they can take all the hard work out of looking up all these locations on his or her own!

    My kiddos went to Bethany First Church of the Nazarene Kids Day Out, and I even worked there for several years. We were very happy with our time spent there!

    You missed the one we attend: Forst Presbyterian School (it’s MDO-pre-K) at NW 24th & Western – great for those of us in midtown!

    Also, my church, Christ the King, has a great MDO program! ☺️

    You missed one! The Learning Center at Nichols Hills United Methodist Church is excellent! Also, there is a wonderful MDO at New Hope United Methodist Church.

    You missed a GREAT MDO program in Choctaw — Choctaw’s Mother’s Day Out at Choctaw United Methodist Church. Here’s a link to their Facebook page:

    Add to this great resource article, please!

    does anyone know of any preschools that implement the REGGIO philosophy? thank you.

    • Shayla April 5, 2017 at 5:32 pm #

      You might look into Montessori schools. There are several around the city. I don’t know if it’s exactly the same, but from my understanding they sound very similar.

    • Melissa August 19, 2017 at 8:08 pm #

      Discovery School in South OKC uses the REGGIO approach: They are fantastic! My son attended last year and will attend again for the 2017-2018 year. They are expanding in a new location and should have room. Christy and her staff are fabulous!

    Please add Little Leaf Playgarden in Uptown OKC.

    Does anyone know if any of the places in Edmond/Central OKC/Metro offer part time? The Mother’s Day Out options have usually been too few hours for what I’m needing. Thanks for your help.

  11. Myloe March 27, 2017 at 4:33 pm #

    Is there anywhere that someone can use just once a week or something like that? My sister-in-law has three foster care kids under the age of two and she wants them to get some socialization (and honestly needs a break sometimes) but doesn’t need day care.

    • Shayla April 5, 2017 at 5:33 pm #

      The MDO’s (Mother’s Day out) are usually only two days per week in our experience.

      Also, Crossings MDO is where we’ve always gone & are not on the list 👌🏻

    • Kristy April 20, 2017 at 7:45 am #

      New Hope CDO offers one, two, or three day a week options.

    Just wanted to let you know that Capitol Hill Baptist Church has changed its CDO program to Mothers Day Out Preschool. Now offered two days a week and the website address is now
