About Our Program
We offer a class for 2 and 3-year-olds and a PreK class for 4 and 5-year-olds.  The curriculum for the 2/3-year-old class is theme-based and includes preschool topics and Christian stories.  The 4/5-year-old class includes Pre-K topics such as colors and shapes, math, writing, reading, and Christian stories from the Bible.  Children in the Pre-K class must be able to use the washroom independently and tolerate a structured classroom setting.  Parents must provide their child’s snack and lunch.

Fees include a non-refundable $50 registration fee and monthly tuition.

Parents Day Out (PDO) is located at Kingswood United Methodist Church, 401 West Dundee Road, Buffalo Grove, Il, 60089. It is easily accessible from Dundee Road.  All children are required to have a complete physical and provide a completed Illinois Department of Public Health Certificate of Child Health Examination.

It is the opinion of KUMC that every child has the opportunity to participate in our PDO program.  KUMC will attempt to provide PDO opportunities for participants faced with financial hardships.  If you have questions about our program, please email our Director, Paula Swanson.

Our Goals For Each Child
Each child will:
  • develop basic social skills
  • increase independence
  • develop trust in adults other than his or her parents
  • enjoy being part of a group and learn to share and cooperate
  • develop a desire to learn
  • become aware of the fact that he or she is a child of God and will grow in God’s love
