If your child is enrolled in our program please join the notification list through this app.

Mission Statement

Dalewood Baptist Church PDO is committed to the developmental growth of each child spiritually, socio-emotionally, intellectually and physically.

Vision Statement

With this mission statement in mind, our vision for the growth of children who participate in this program is as follows:

  • With this mission statement in mind, our vision for the growth of children who participate in this program is as follows:
  • Spiritually- Children give thanks to God through prayer and song. Children know of God?s love for them through Bible stories and daily interactions with staff. Children model the love of Christ by listening, sharing, following directions, working out problems and conflicts in a peaceful manner, and by being sensitive in what they say and do to others. Socio-Emotionally- children are in control of their emotions and express themselves verbally. Children learn to be secure and function independently, not reliant on adults and others in their lives. Children are involved in cooperative play.
  • Intellectually (Cognitively) – Children are exposed to basic academic concepts. Children are able to formulate thoughts and express ideas based on these concepts. Children demonstrate the ability to follow directions and attend/ participate in moderate length (20 minutes) group times.
  • Physically- Children are able to demonstrate age-appropriate gross motor skills. Children are able to complete small motor skills necessary for prewriting. Children show proficiency at self help tasks such as toileting, hand-washing, and eating. These are the goals we strive for each child to reach before leaving DBC Parents Day Out to be promoted to Kindergarten. PDO experiences provide the child with the foundation for on-going learning and support the child and family to become responsible partners in community life. We plan our program to provide children with opportunities to reach these goals during the time that they are at Dalewood.
