Parents’ Morning Out (PMO) is Duke Memorial's ministry to parents of babies and young children. PMO is staffed with loving teachers and is open five days a week for babies eight months to three years of age*. Currently, we have 118 children enrolled in 22 classes. Children may be enrolled up to two mornings per week depending on availability. The program includes free play, music, crafts, playground time, and snacks. Parents provide the lunch. Our hours are 9:15 am – 12:45 pm, Monday-Friday. We closely follow a traditional school calendar from September to May. Summer Camp options are offered during June and July.
The cost is $80/month for 1 day a week and $160/month for 2 days a week.
At Duke Memorial, we believe that children are a gift from God. In order to demonstrate our absolute and unwavering commitment to the physical safety and spiritual growth of all of our children and youth we have a Safe Sanctuaries Policy. The Safe Sanctuaries Policy is a set of guidelines and procedures implemented to create an environment in which children, youth, and adults who work with them have boundaries of safe space. All volunteers and workers with infants, children, and youth have had background checks and have received training in our Safe Sanctuaries Policies.
